Can I enter 0 in Box2 info from 1098 (HELOC) if the origination date was in 2017 and the outstanding balance at 1/1/18 was 0?

My HELOC has an origination date in 2017 and did not have a balance until June 2018.  I am unable to enter 0 in Box2 when filling out for my 1098.  What should be entered?

No, that won't make sense to the program. If you finished the paperwork in 2017, but did not start using the loan until 2018, 

enter 0 in box 2 for the 01.01.2018 balance and 01.02.2018 for the origination date in Box 3. 

The program won't like 0 in box 2 but if you enter a 2018 origination date you can move forward and it's the only way you can move forward without a balance carried forward from 2017.
