The form is actually available but for some reason the a lot of are getting the 8863 error msssage and aren’t able to finish filing because of it! Turbo tax has been working on the problem but I read that won’t be fixed until the next system update which is scheduled for thrbfirst or second week of Febuary!! LUCKY FOR YOU, you won’t have to wait to fix this and finish filing your taxes just sign in to your turbo tax account and click on tools, delete forms, scroll down and find the 8863 for click on it and then click delete file and remove the form from your return completely don’t worry this doesn’t change your refund amount at all all your education information was saved from your 1098T. After you delete form 8863 go back and finish filing your return !!

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.
