It says that I qualify for Learning Opportunity Credit. I do not if I can use my 1098-T at all since in a technical sense I have not paid the amount listed on the 1098-T VA has.

If your GI benefits paid for all of your college tuition, then you aren't eligible for an additional tax credit, so don't include your 1098-T at all in your tax return.
