If there is a taxable distribution and TT doesn't give you a way to easily tell it how much, just force it onto line 21 of the 1040 and, if applicable, Part II of Form 5329.

It's not that TT isn't calculating a taxable portion of the distribution, it is. But since the distribution *was* used to pay for tuition, it shouldn't be taxable at all, right?
