How can I file my 2017 form 1098-T?

When I was doing my tax return this year I couldn't find my 2017 1098-T form. I finally found it and would like to add. I download the TurboTax software but couldn't download the form there.

Do you need to file an original 2017 tax return, or an amended one?

You will need to report the 2017 1098-T form on your 2017 tax return. If you have not filed an original 2017 tax return, click here to get started:

If you have already filed a 2017 return, you will need to amend that return to include the 2017 1098-T form you have. 

If you already filed your return you will need to wait to see if it was rejected or accepted. If they were rejected you are able to login to your return to fix what you need to fix and fix the errors that caused the rejection and refile the return. If your returns were accepted, then you will need to file an amended return. You should not try to amend your return until the original return it has been fully processed and you have received your refund or your payment has cleared.
Amended returns do not “catch up” to your original return and replace them; they are processed as two separate returns.  
Amended returns have to be printed and filed by mail.  It can take the IRS up to 12 weeks or longer to process them.   If you are due a larger refund than on your original return, your amended return should only show the difference and you will receive a separate check for it.  If you owe money on your amended return, it will show only the new amount owed, you will have to mail a check with the return. You can check the status of your amended return by clicking here:
