So my family and I decided to do all of our taxes ourselves on TurboTax. My daughter filed hers first and claimed a $ 300 deduction on Form 8863 (education). She wasn’t supposed to even though she claimed she paid $ 300 for books. I filed yesterday and claimed her on Form 8863 because I paid for her tuition and most of her books. I filed my submission and it got rejected since my daughter had already used her name and Ssn on form 8863. So what do I do? My refund goes down by like $ 1000 if I simply remove her from the education credit 8863 form. She already has an amendment form ready with a check to the IRS, which we are going to mail tmrw, but I hear it will take 12 weeks. How will I be able to file my taxes now? When do I file? Do i wait sometime after I mail the amended return? Help! I also added the $ 300 she claimed to my return on form 8863 to compensate my daughter once I get my check.
