Why 1098-T won't go to correct student?

If you  are claiming the student as your dependent, be sure to enter the dependent's information in the personal "My Info" section first, before you enter the 1098-T.

 

When you enter the 1098-T, TurboTax will ask who the student is, be sure to pick the proper dependent. 

 

If the student is not you or your dependent, you don't claim the 1098-T.
