Where do i enter my 1098 t information?

Are you the student? 

Does someone else claim you as their dependent? 

Is the amount in Box 1 more or less than the amount in Box 5? 

Are you expecting to claim income or a credit?

In TurboTax (TT), enter at:

Federal Taxes Tab (Personal for H&B version)

There's a new urban myth among college students that says they can get a $1000 from the government just for filing a tax form. For most of them, they simply aren't eligible. A full time unmarried student, under age 24, even if you don't qualify as a dependent, is only eligible for the refundable portion of the American Opportunity Credit if he supports himself by working. You cannot be supporting yourself on parental support, 529 plans or student loans & grants. It is usually best if the parent claims that credit. 

You cannot claim a credit if you are, or can be, claimed as a dependent by someone else.
