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

by Intuit Updated 2 months ago

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

  1. Open or continue your return.
  2. Select Search and enter Form 1098-T.
  3. Select Jump to form 1098-t.

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

  1. Open or continue your return.
  2. Select Federal Taxes and then Deductions & Credits.
  3. Select I'll choose what I work on.
  4. Under Education, select Start or Update next to ESA and 529 qualified tuition programs (Form 1099-Q).
  5. Follow the screens to enter your info.

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.
