I've read through Pub 970 a few times and still can't fully understand how distibutions are to be treated when there was a 529 payout, scholarship, tuition and fees, and room and board. It appears there is some wiggle room depending on which of the tax benefits I'm trying to use (Hope, Lifetime, Tuition & Fees). Does anyone know of another guide like a decision tree are chart that I could use to walk me throguh this process? Thanks
