Cannot remove the tuition transfer on my child and my own return (using Easystep). I have unchecked the boxes on both returns but the transfer remains.

I initially clicked the box to transfer tuition (using the Easystep interview) on both my return and my child's. The software made the transfer but there was no benefit to me in doing so. I have  Once it was clear it was not beneficial, I unchecked the boxes in both returns but doing so has not removed the transfer. As this affects the carry-forward of the tuition for my child, how do I remove the transfer?

Answer

@barrydhart when you want to remove an amount, you have to first make the amount $0 where you entered it and then uncheck the box in easystep. Unchecking the box in Easystep does not delete the amount from 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.
