Once you have entered all the pertinent information into the education section, the program will select the credit that results in the best tax benefit for you when you select "Maximize My Education Tax Break". If you want to change this selection, for instance the program picks the American Opportunity Tax Credit, but you want to take the Lifetime Learning Credit, follow the steps below. 

Type   letme   (as one word) into the search box

Why do you want LTC? Have you already take the American Opportunity Tax Credit for 4 years? Typically, TurboTax will choose the most beneficial credit if you qualify for more than one. Let me know.
