Helping Clients Plan for Higher Education On-Demand Webinar


As children grow up and go off to college, there are tax benefits available to help offset the rising costs of education. This webinar addresses the requirements and calculation of the two education tax credits, the American opportunity tax credit (AOTC) and the lifetime learning credit (LLC). We will review what expenses qualify as higher education expenses, the impacts of distributions from §529 plans and scholarships on the education credits, and calculating the credits on Form 8863, Education Credits.
