Where do I enter Form 1098-T (Tuition Statement)?

SOLVEDby TurboTax12240Updated October 05, 2023

Here's how to enter your 1098-T in TurboTax:

  1. Open or continue your return
  2. Use the search function to find Form 1098-T
  3. If you land on Your Education Expenses Summary:
    • Select Edit next to the name of the student you're entering a 1098-T for (select Add A Student if the student isn't listed)
    • On the next screen, select Edit next to the school name. You can enter the info from your 1098-T on the following screen
  4. If you land on Do you want to enter your higher education expenses?:
    • Answer Yes
    • Answer Yes to Did you get a 1098-T for this year? and Continue
    • On the next screen, you can choose how you'd like to add your 1098-T. You can upload a digital copy from your computer or type it in yourself. Select which option you'd like and Continue
  5. If you need to enter a 1098-T for someone else, continue through the screens until you get to the Your Education Expenses Summary screen, then select Add A Student

If you received a 1098-T and you weren't reimbursed by your employer, you can enter that info in the mobile app.

  1. Open the app and sign in
  2. Select Deductions & Credits then Review/Edit
  3. Choose Education then Expenses and Scholarships (Form 1098-T)
    • If you don’t see Education, select Check for more tax breaks and All tax breaks
  4. Follow the instructions to enter your expenses

Some important tips about entering this form:

  • Enter your 1098-T exactly as is, even if the amounts are wrong (this is common). You'll get a chance to correct this info and enter additional expenses later on
  • Leave blank boxes blank. Don't enter 0 for any blank boxes on the form, as this generates errors
  • Parents: If the student listed on the 1098-T is your dependent, enter the 1098-T on your return, even if your dependent paid the tuition
  • Students: If you're not being claimed as a dependent, enter the 1098-T on your return regardless of who paid the tuition, unless it was your employer. In that case, just keep the 1098-T with your tax records
