Latest and final version of software still has this issue.
Value from Row 26 ("Has the student been convicted of posession...") does not propogate, from the tuition worksheet to form 8863.
This issue was reported in Feb but is showing up on the latest version of the software. I got my software 2 days ago, and it indicates no updates are available, although another post indicates the issue was resolved in Feb. The value from Row 26 does not propagate to the form and I cannot efile if I override the value. I tried to manually download an update but it will not install. Pls help as I am running out of time to efile.
Software version: 2015 Deluxe + efile + state
Federal version 8101, WDDA-002015-UVRVX3J6

today is 02/18/2018 and I am also having an issue with Form 8863 line 25 and 26. I have the boxes marked in the software but when I print the forms they are not marked and I am unable to electronically file. So if the 02/12/2018 fix was supposed to fix this issue it has not. How do we proceed?

I see that this issue with line 26 of the 8863 form was corrected in 2016, but I am having the same issue for 2017 taxes using the H&R Deluxe software. I have entered all information in the Education Credits section for my wife, including her 1098-T, but there is no question or prompt for her criminal history/status. When I go to e-file, line 26 is empty. I would much prefer to be able to e-file. Can you please let me know if you will be issuing a fix for this year's filing?
