What education expenses don't qualify for the Illinois Education Expense Credit?

Education expenses that don't qualify for this credit include:
  • Expenses paid to a daycare, preschool, college, university, independent tutoring service, or trade school.
  • Expenses paid for the purchase of supplies, books, or equipment that are not significantly used up during the school year (e.g., purchasing musical instruments or costumes for a play).
  • Expenses paid for the use of supplies, equipment, materials, or instruments if the program does not result in a credit towards completion of the school's education program.
  • Expenses paid directly to a business (e.g., renting a musical instrument from a music store).
