TT is showing 529 distributions as taxable income even though it's for qualified expenses for my kid's college expenses.I received a1099Q my name.How do I fix it?

I entered the 1099Q information for distributions received from my kids 529 plan. i own it but they are the beneficiaries. I received payment from the 529 plan to pay me back for the qualified expenses that I paid. I'm not eligible for the educational credit. The program is treating this income as taxable, when it is not! I tried entering$0  in the " Amount used for educational deduction or credit" under education information. it's still wrong. How do I fix this?

If all of the distributors from the 529 plan were used for education expenses you do not have to include that form on your return.
