Whether you are paying for a college education or a teacher buying items for your classroom, education credits and deductions can help lower your tax bill.
The American Opportunity Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit or the Tuition and Fees Deduction may help offset the cost of higher education for you, your spouse and your dependents.
If you itemize your deductions on Form 1040, Schedule A, you may be able to deduct expenses you paid for medical care – including dental – for yourself, your spouse, and your dependents.
