So I've read through the forums and I'm not actually sure if my question is the same as some of the others posted (I'm sorry!)
This is my first 1098-T. Box 1 is empty, but I show $10,756 in box 2. Under box 5 (scholarships and grants), I have $2,000.
However, TurboTax then asks me...
You told us that Box 2 (tuition/expenses billed) on Your 1098-T had an amount of $10,756. Sometimes this amount differs from what you may have actually paid.
Did you actually pay $10,756 for Your tuition/expenses (including scholarship, fellowships and grants) in 2012 to UNIVERSITY ?
Yes, this is the correct amount.
The reason I am SO confused is because most of my tuition ($10,756) was "paid" through loans. So did I actually *pay* this amount??
No, the amount paid is different.
