Get your taxes done using TurboTax

1040T shows 48K in box 2 and 46K in box 5.  Why when it asks what portion was used for room and board, the higher the amount entered, the more my tax goes up?  Why should anything on form 1040T make my tax go up?  I thought it was for the purpose of claiming a deduction or credit.

 

Thanks
