The IRS offers several tax credits related to higher education expenses. Investigating these credits can help you reduce your tax liability.
- The American Opportunity Credit is available to full-time undergraduate college students between the ages of 18 and 24, who are not self-supporting. The maximum credit is $2,500 and can comprise tuition, fees, and course material expenses.
- The Lifetime Learning Credit, meanwhile, is open to students of undergraduate, graduate, or certificate-level courses who are studying at least part-time. This credit covers up to 20% of the first $10,000 of qualifying educational expenses.
