Lifetime Learning Credit
The Lifetime Learning Credit is an IRS law that allows people to take a tax credit (not a deduction) on their annual taxes. There is an online form in the self-serve area HERE that is updated every January with the last year qualified tuition and fee and the applicable financial aid (scholarships, grants, etc.) that reduces the credit. Loans do not reduce the credit because you repay them. Business Services will mail a form to all students at the end of January.
Parent & Family Programs advises you to seek help from a professional tax accountant for a better understanding of the law or credit.
