    You only need to enter the information on the Form 1098-T once, via "Federal Taxes" - "Deductions & Credits" - "Education" - "Education Expenses." The program will automatically determine any taxable grant/scholarship income and add it to your return.

    • I'm a graduate student and received a fellowship that pays for my tuition and for my research and living expenses. I calculated the taxable portion of my fellowship to enter in my wages and income, but after entering my 1098-T, TurboTax overrode the taxable amount I previously entered with the amount of scholarships posted on my 1098T. I am now being taxed for my entire fellowship rather than the taxable portion only. How do I fix this? This is completely opaque and poorly executed on TurboTax's part.

    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.
