Course Description

Paying for educational expenses isn’t easy. At tax time, there are certain educational tax credits that can help offset some higher education costs by lowering the tax liability of households with eligible students. There are even some circumstances where one may be eligible for a tax refund.

If your clients paid for education expenses in the last year, you may be able to save money on their taxes by claiming the American opportunity credit or lifetime learning credit, or opting for the the tuition and fees deduction. The American opportunity credit is generally the most valuable, if they qualify. You clients can claim these education tax credits and deductions even if you paid with a student loan. Parents can take advantage, too, so long as they don't choose a married filing separately status. Here's what to know about each option.

This course will cover all aspects of planning for higher-education expenses including:

  • The American Opportunity Credit
  • The Lifetime Learning Credit,
  • The deduction for tuition and fees.
  • Section 529 College Savings Plans.
  • Case studies & Tax planning strategies.

I rarely write testimonials but I felt compelled to write this one. Brian was an amazing instructor! Very knowledgeable, engaging and kept my attention the entire time with RELEVANT information. I immediately called two of my friends with children in elementary school, sent them the link provided in the webinar and told them to sign up for a 529 Plan ASAP! This is a great topic for CPAs with young children, not just for their clients.

AB

Absolutely terrific seminar! As a parent with two college graduates, one with huge debt for “flight costs” (commercial aviation major) and one with no debt, I appreciate every angle of this information.
