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
