Do I need Form 1098-T from my child's college before I can claim the American Opportunity Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit, or Education Deduction?

No. There is no requirement that you receive Form 1098-T before you claim the American Opportunity Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit or the Education Deduction. If you know the amount of tuition paid to the college you can enter that amount on the Additional Tuition Expenses screen in the College Tuition (Form 1098-T) section.
