The 1098-T for 2010 is only to use in that tax year. Because the American Opportunity Credit is refundable, you may be able to get a refund, even if you didn't have income in 2010.

Although TurboTax Online 2010 is no longer available, you can still order the TurboTax CD or downloadable software to prepare your 2010 tax return. Here is the address: http://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products.jsp

You'll need to install the software on your computer.

After completing your 2010 return, print and mail it – the IRS has shut down e-filing for tax year 2010.

If you're expecting a refund on your 2010 tax return, you have until April 15, 2014 to file your 2010 return and claim your refund. After that, unclaimed 2010 tax refunds are kept by the U.S. Treasury.

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.
