that may be available to you if you are saving for or paying education costs for yourself or, in many cases, another student who is a member of your immediate family. 1040a tax form 2011 Most benefits apply only to higher education. 1040a tax form 2011 What is in this publication. 1040a tax form 2011    Chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions , explains the tax treatment of various types of educational assistance, including scholarships, fellowships, and tuition reductions. 1040a tax form 2011   Two tax credits for which you may be eligible are explained in chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit , and chapter 3, Lifetime Learning Credit . 1040a tax form 2011 These benefits, which reduce the amount of income tax you may have to pay, are: The American opportunity credit, and The lifetime learning credit. 1040a tax form 2011    Ten other types of benefits are explained in chapters 4 through 12. 1040a tax form 2011 These benefits, which reduce the amount of income tax you may have to pay, are: Deduct student loan interest; Receive tax-free treatment of a canceled student loan; Receive tax-free student loan repayment assistance; Deduct tuition and fees for education; Establish and contribute to a Coverdell education savings account (ESA), which features tax-free earnings; Participate in a qualified tuition program (QTP), which features tax-free earnings; Take early distributions from any type of individual retirement arrangement (IRA) for education costs without paying the 10% additional tax on early distributions; Cash in savings bonds for education costs without having to pay tax on the interest; Receive tax-free educational benefits from your employer; and Take a business deduction for work-related education. 1040a tax form 2011 Note. 1040a tax form 2011 You generally cannot claim more than one of the benefits described in the list above for the same qualifying education expense. 1040a tax form 2011 Comparison table. 1040a tax form 2011   Some of the features of these benefits are highlighted in Appendix B, Highlights of Education Tax Benefits for Tax Year 2013 , later, in this publication. 1040a tax form 2011 This general comparison table may guide you in determining which benefits you may be eligible for and which chapters you may want to read. 1040a tax form 2011 When you figure your taxes, you may want to compare these tax benefits so you can choose the method(s) that gives you the lowest tax liability. 1040a tax form 2011 If you qualify, you may find that a combination of credit(s) and deduction(s) gives you the lowest tax. 1040a tax form 2011 Analyzing your tax withholding. 1040a tax form 2011   After you estimate your education tax benefits for the year, you may be able to reduce the amount of your federal income tax withholding. 1040a tax form 2011 Also, you may want to recheck your withholding during the year if your personal or financial situation changes. 1040a tax form 2011 See Publication 919, How Do I Adjust My Tax Withholding, for more information. 1040a tax form 2011 Glossary. 1040a tax form 2011   In this publication, wherever appropriate, we have tried to use the same or similar terminology when referring to the basic components of each education benefit. 1040a tax form 2011 Some of the terms used are: Qualified education expenses, Eligible educational institution, and Modified adjusted gross income. 1040a tax form 2011   Even though the same term, such as qualified education expenses, is used to label a basic component of many of the education benefits, the same expenses are not necessarily allowed for each benefit. 1040a tax form 2011 For example, the cost of room and board is a qualified education expense for the qualified tuition program, but not for the education savings bond program. 1040a tax form 2011   Many of the terms used in the publication are defined in the glossary near the end of the publication. 1040a tax form 2011 The glossary is not intended to be a substitute for reading the chapter on a particular education benefit, but it will give you an overview of how certain terms are used in discussing the different benefits. 1040a tax
