Why is box 1 and 2 blank on my 1098 T form. It shows my grant i received in box 5 and a check mark in box 8.

Also the grant was used to pay my whole tuition for one semester last year, which I completed.
    You need to enter the tuition amount as "Tuition not reported on the 1098-t" on a screen after you enter your 1098t

    Box 2 is probably blank because the tuition was billed in 2009 and paid in 2010.
    Schools only fill in box 1 or box 2, not both.
    • BOTH Box 1 and 2 are blank, but Box 5 shows scholoarships received. am I required to report this 1098t if BOTH box 1 and 2 is empty?

      This isn't happening for me... may I enter the full amount paid to the school in box 1, even though it was left empty?
      An itemized list was provided to me by the University, I just don't see where to enter it into a worksheet/form in Turbo tax.2012.
      Mmany thanks
    • An answer to the above would be helpful to me as well! Thank you Louise

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
