My Form 1099-Q includes amount distributed in Dec 2016 but received by school in Jan 2017. Since this does not show up in the 2016 Form 1098-T, the difference seems to be counted as income. I do not want to use the prepay option for this Spring 2017 fee.

I need the Spring 2017 fee for next year's deduction. There is no benefit in using the additional 1099-Q amount for  2016 filing. How do I resolve this.

You can enter an adjustment to subtract the spring tuition as follows:

  1. Type "1098-T" in the Search box, then select Jump to 1098-T.
  2. As you enter information from the form, under Box 2. Amounts billed, you will see a sentence in blue, What if this is not what [the student] paid to this school? Click on that link, and you will be able to enter the amount actually paid.  (See the screenshot below.)

Save this 1098-T and a copy of your 2016 tax return for next year. You will be able to take credit for the tuition that was billed but not paid until 2017.
