My child lost her 1098 t form. Can I still claim her without entering the information from the 1098 t or do I need that?

My child lost her 1098 t form. Can I still claim her without entering the information from the 1098 t or do I need that?

I dont have enough time to get a copy of my child’s 1098t form because she lost it. I do claim her as a dependent so do I have to put the information from her 1098t form or is there a way to just skip that without getting in trouble?

You are not required to enter your 1098-T as it is an informational document.

However, if your scholarships/grants (if any) exceed your Qualified Education Expenses, you are required to claim the difference as income.

If your educational expenses exceed your financial aid, you may qualify for an education deduction or credit.

So, you should claim both your financial aid as well as your qualified educational expenses.

 Her school should be able to provide you with a substitute 1098-T or a statement of scholarships/grants (if any) and qualified education expenses.
