I understand that the tuition we paid for using money withdrawn from a 529 isn't qualified for a hope credit or a lifetime learning credit, because that's money that was earning tax-free. Also I can see from starting in on TurboTax that it doesn't make any difference--our income last year was too low for us to owe tax, so we wouldn't get a credit anyway. So my question is, do I still fill in the info about the 1098-T? even if we won't claim a credit?
