I am a graduate student. I am trying to fill out my taxes. My fellowship covers both my tuition and provides me with a monthly stipend. On my 1098-T (document that says how much I paid for schooling) it says how much tuition my fellowship covered. On my tax forms (1040) how do I put in my monthly stipend I get from my fellowship?
Once you figure out the taxable portion of your fellowship (basically everything not applied to the tuition), follow the instructions in this chapter of the same publication as to how to report. For 1040 filers such as yourself, you would put the amount on line 7 (whether you got a a W2 or not).
I tried doing it myself with turbo tax and somehow did it wrong and it suggest I owed 1000 or more. I did it with the H&R block software and it said I owed 0. Thus I decided to seek a professional at H&R.
Since I had no W2 and only a 1098-T I didn't have to declare anything and thus owing 0 was the correct amount. Also, since I owed zero and didn't really have to make the tax form the H&R advisor didn't even charge me (and I was guaranteed I did it correctly).
Bottom line, call them and ask. Better to do it with a pro is my advice.
Turbo tax is overhyped, it's not good at all actually.
