Questions & Answers

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

Yes, if you meet all of the other eligibility requirements to claim an education credit or deduction. The American Opportunity Credit or 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.
