The question is which credit do you qualify.

 

If you disagree to the option TurboTax program offers you, you can use the "letme" feature to replace. 

 

In TurboTax online,

  • Sign into your account, select Pick up where you left off
  • At the right upper corner, in the search box , type in letme and Enter 
  • Select  Jump to letme 
  • Next screen, Education Credits and Deduction-Do you want to change the education calculations? select Yes  and follow the prompts.

     

    If you have paid qualified education expenses and meet certain requirements, you may qualify for an education tax break including the American Opportunity Tax Credit AOTC, Lifetime Learning Credit or Tuition & Fees deduction. To see if you qualify, here are the links: 

     

    Qualified expenses

     

    Deductions

     

    Credits

I'm confused by this too because I did the "letme" and clicked my AOC but it's still saying I need to update to TurboTax deluxe for federal AND state, which is $85

I just got off the phone with them. Apparently the 1098T is no longer included in the free version of Turbo tax and requires us to upgrade which is $85.

Is the 1098T no longer included in the free version of turbo tax? It allowed me to file last year free.

that's some bull****. I feel like it's definitely understandable when it's lifetime learning or if you're using it for deductions, but for a credit? ridiculous and predatory for sure.
