In that section, the amount for tuition shows zero and is cannot be edited.  It indicates that the amount was entered earlier, which it was not.

>>> This Did NOT Fix the issue.

 

I am working on locally installed TTax Deluxe, on Win 7 PC.

Cannot follow the guide or directly enter info on College Tuition Expense or 529 program distributions.

As this is local install - clearing the browser cache has nothing to do with this issue (Though i did it anyway...)

 

Please ehlp - taxes in NC Due tomorrow and i need to do Federal in order to do State...

I eventually found a post with the solution.  I can't remember exactly the steps but from what I do remember, you go through the process of entering and as we noted, the tuition section shows a zero and you cannot edit it.  But finish the section anyway.  Then at the end there is a summary page, stop on that page and hit "edit student" or something of the sort.  When you enter that edit section, then your allowed to enter the tuition from your forms.  Hope this helps.  Good luck.

You should be able to edit the education information when you complete the education entry screens and get to the summary page:
