I am trying to enter my daughter's 1098t, but it already has $0 entered for tuition and enrollment fees, which is inaccurate, but there is nowhere to change it. Help!

I am trying to enter my daughter's 1098t, but it already has $0 entered for tuition and enrollment fees, which is inaccurate, but there is nowhere to change it. Help!

If you see your school listed with a $0, follow these steps to enter your current year data:

 

  1. Login toTurboTax.com.
  2. Click on Tax Home on the left side of the screen.
  3. If prompted, click on Continue where I left off or Take me to my return.
  4. Choose Deductions and Credits.
  5. Expand the Education section.
  6. Click on Start (or Revisit).
  7. Proceed through the entire education section answering all of the additional questions - you will go through about 8-10 additional screens, and then you should reach a summary page.
  8. On the Education Summary screen at the end of the section, click Edit/Delete.
  9. Edit your entries.

 

If you still cannot edit the data or you cannot get to the Education Summary screen, follow these additional steps:

  1. Click on Tax Tools in the menu on the left of the screen.
  2. Click on Tools.
  3. Scroll down the list of forms and click delete beside Form 1098-T.
  4. Confirm on the next screen by clicking Delete Form.
  5. Scroll down the list of forms again and click Delete beside Education Tuition and Fees Summary.
  6. Again, confirm on the next screen by clicking Delete Form.

This should clear the section out entirely and let you start fresh.
