I am not eligible for the Lifetime Learning Credit

When I clicked the file tab, it said that I need to upgrade since I have the Lifetime Learning credit, and TurboTax Free Edition does not cover this situation. However, I am not eligible for the Lifetime Learning Credit. And it will not allow me to file without paying...how do I fix this?

I am not eligible for the Lifetime Learning Credit

If you don't qualify for the Lifetime Learning Credit,  or want to eliminate it, you'll have to delete the forms that are related to education credits.

 If you see form 8863 and form 1098-T, delete them. Click here for instructions

I am a full-time student and have paid for school and I have scholarships; so, would deleting these forms negatively impact my taxes?

No, most likely.

 

The Lifetime Leaning credit is a non-refundable credit.  So if you have no calculated tax, it will do you no good.
