You indicate who on your tax return is the student in the Education section.  More than one student can be entered in the Education section.  Once the first student's information has been entered, you can add another student.

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Deductions and Credits
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Education
  • On Expenses and Scholarships (Form 1098-T), click the start or update button

Some educational benefits are per return, but most are per student. Turbotax can make the distinction.
