What if my parents paid my tuition

If you are a dependent of your parents, they would claim your exemption, education expenses and payments.

(be sure to elect "Someone else can claim me" during your personal info interview)

If you are not a dependent, and you are claiming your own exemption, whatever someone paid towards your education expenses are treated as if you paid them.
