Tax Education Benefits
The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 created a number of new education tax incentives, including the Hope Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit and a limited deduction for interest paid on student loans. The Hope Credit may be claimed for payments of qualified tuition and related expenses. This means the tuition and fees an individual is required to pay in order to be enrolled at or attend an eligible educational institution.
If you have questions regarding this law, please consult your personal tax advisor, or the IRS.
