Tax Credits

There are two tax credits available that you may qualify for. They are outlined as follows:

  1. Lifetime Learning Tax
    If you are beyond the first 2 years of college, you may qualify for the Lifetime Learning tax credit.
  2. American Opportunity Credit, formerly Hope Scholarship
    You may be eligible for tax credits through the Hope Scholarship. This tax credit may be claimed for the qualified tuition and related expenses of each student in the taxpayer's family. For further information and guidance on the Hope Scholarship, consult a tax professional and / or access the website.
