No, an amount in box 2 on Form 1098-T is not an income.  It indicates the amount of school tuition you have paid or being billed in 2016. If you paid the expenses out of pocket, you are entitled to claim an education credit or deduction on your tax return. 

To enter your Form 1098-T information in TurboTax online program, go to:
