I came from India on F1 visa in 2008 for my MS. I finished my MS degree in 2011. I paid around 15000 USD in 2010 for my college fee. I went to one of the tax office and I got wrong advise.I filed tuition credit return in 2011 and got around 1500 USD back.
I was not told that MS student could not file that tuition credit. Only undergraduate students were eligible for that. I filed saying that I am 3rd year college student, because I came in USA in 2008 and I was running 3rd year during 2010.
Currently I am on H1b and company is filing green card. Will I be in trouble during background process or should I file tax amendment?
