Sorry, this response was not helpful. 

When I click on the 1098-T jump link, I'm taken to a screen where the "Tuition and enrollment fees" line item is already populated with "$0" with no ability to edit it.

When going to this screen, there is no question that asks "Did you get a 1098-T for the year?" It simply says that Tuition and Enrollment fees are $0, and there is no way to edit this. The hyperlink for Tuition and enrollment fees states that  this number was entered earlier. So, where does this number get entered?

I'm not using the online form, but I have the purchased software installed. So do I still need to delete a form in the software?

Where do I enter 1098-T Box 1?

I have the exact same issue.  My "Tuition and enrollment fees" shows $0. I cannot change it and there is no 1098-T in the forms. 

When I click the "Tuition and enrollment fee" the description says...

"Note: You entered this number earlier"

 

But I never got a chance to enter it at all and cannot.

Please help.

Pease go through the education interview from wherever the program starts you until the end of the interview, then see if you can straighten things out. 

Please be sure to enter your Personal Information FIRST, then your income, then go into the Education Section under Deductions & Credits.

 

After you get through the ENTIRE education interview, see if a 1098-T is listed. If so, delete it and start over. 

 

When you are finished, you should be able to see the credit that was taken by typing   letme    into the search-box then clicking the "Jump to letme" link.
