I live in Kansas and I believe I qualify for the K-26 tax credit which would be the biggest credit available to me. How do I file this with TurboTax?

If you qualify, you can claim the credit when you prepare your KS resident tax return.   On the Take a look at Kansas credits and taxes page, scroll down and click Start next to Other Credits and Credit Carryovers.  Answer YES and then enter the amount on the KS-26 line; it is the 4th item in the list.   

 

A tax credit for certain qualified aviation and aerospace employers for tuition or certain program-specific course fee reimbursements paid to a qualified employee, for compensation paid to qualified employees in each of the first five years of employment, and for individuals who become qualified employees of aviation or aerospace employers.
