Questions & Answers

I paid my college tuition with a student loan. Can I claim the American Opportunity Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit, or Education Deduction?

Yes, if you meet all of the other eligibility requirements to claim an education credit. The American Opportunity Credit, Lifetime Learning Credit, or Education Deduction is taken in the year in which the expenses are paid, not in the year in which the loan is repaid.
