You should only include the amount that you paid. 

 

The instructions for Schedule PTFC/ STFC for prior years say that you can only include the amounts you actually paid. It clearly states you can't include amounts paid by government programs or other individuals. The instructions for 2019 have not been published yet, but there is no reason to believe this year would be different.

 

Click here to see the 2018 instructions. The line instruction is 5a, which is in the upper right corner of page 4.
