Our daughter has tuition fees to transfer. We cannot enter the full amount that she can transfer. The form will only allow $709 but $2387 is the amount from her return

Why can't we enter the full amount from her return?

There are certain restrictions on tuition transfer. For example, if your daughter has taxable income, the tuition credit is applied to her first and only any unused amount is available for transfer. Any unused tuition amount carried over from previous years can no longer be transferred to others and must be used by the student.
