The Federal Lifetime Learning Credit allows a credit for any type of continuing education on Form 8863. New York only allows certain types of education to be claimed for the NY education credit. Because of this, Ultimate Tax can not know what expenses from the federal form should be claimed on the state form.
Check the New York form instructions and manually enter information (overriding fields as needed) on NY IT-272 to include the expenses that New York allows. Anything from the Hope Credit can be claimed for the New York credit and will be calculated.
This information applies to all years of the UltimateTax software.
