Back to School: Tax Benefits for Education
Students will soon be heading back to school, and with skyrocketing education costs, families are increasingly exploring ways to cut costs and save money. With that in mind, in this Alert, we summarize what many consider the easiest attainable tax deductions and tax credits involving education-related expenses. We also highlight a few items commonly mistaken as permissible tax deductions. The American Opportunity Tax Credit – This credit modified the existing Hope Credit, and can amount to $2,500 in tax credits on the first $4,000 (100 percent of the first $2,000 of qualified tuition and related expenses, and 25 percent of the next $2,000) of qualified tuition and related expenses of qualified educational expenses per eligible student. This is available for the first four years of post-secondary education at a qualified education institution. Up to 40 percent of the credit is refundable, which means that taxpayers may be able to receive up to $1,000, even if they have no tax liability. Eligible expenses include tuition at an eligible institution, books and required supplies and course materials, but not room and board, medical expenses, or insurance. The credit is phased out for single taxpayers with modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) between $80,000 to $90,000 and for joint filers with MAGI between $160,000 to $180,000.
