Summer semester

Hello!

My daughter's Spring and Fall semesters are covered by Aid and Scholarships.

She also took class at the summer time and it was not covered at all and I paid for it myself.

1. Is this amount included into 1098-T? I do not see it on it.

2. Can I put money paid for the summer into spending in  the TAX return?

Summer semester

Yes, you can put the education expenses you paid for out of pocket for her summer school without a Form 1098-T. If her full tuition is covered by scholarships and aid, then the 1098-T you received should reflect the amount of two semesters of tuition. 

 

If you enter an addition 1098-T, you should add it separately from the 1098-T form you did receive. It is also important to keep in mind that you need to have records to support your additional deduction. This could be credit card statements, canceled checks, and/or receipts for the tuition paid. 

 

Here's how to get to the 1098-T screen if you haven't visited the Education section yet:

  1. Open (continue) your return, if you don't already have it open.
  2. Search for 1098t and select the Jump to link at the top of your search results.
  3. On the Do you want to enter your higher education expenses? screen, answer Yes.
  4. Answer Yes to Did you get a 1098-T for the year? and Continue.
  5. On the next screen, you can choose how you'd like to add your 1098-T. You can upload a digital copy from your computer or type it in yourself. Select which option you'd like and Continue.

From the Education Expenses Summary screen you can:

  • Click on Add New School to enter a new 1098-T.
