H&r Block Free Tax File 2012

H&r block free tax file 2012 3. H&r block free tax file 2012   Lifetime Learning Credit Table of Contents Introduction Can You Claim the CreditWho Can Claim the Credit Who Cannot Claim the Credit What Expenses QualifyQualified Education Expenses No Double Benefit Allowed Expenses That Do Not Qualify Who Is an Eligible Student Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses Figuring the CreditEffect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Credit Claiming the Credit Introduction For 2013, there are two tax credits available to help you offset the costs of higher education by reducing the amount of your income tax. H&r block free tax file 2012 They are the American opportunity credit and the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 This chapter discusses the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 The American opportunity credit is discussed in chapter 2, The American Opportunity Credit . H&r block free tax file 2012 This chapter explains: Who can claim the lifetime learning credit, What expenses qualify for the credit, Who is an eligible student, Who can claim a dependent's expenses, How to figure the credit, How to claim the credit, and When the credit must be repaid. H&r block free tax file 2012 What is the tax benefit of the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012   For the tax year, you may be able to claim a lifetime learning credit of up to $2,000 for qualified education expenses paid for all eligible students. H&r block free tax file 2012 There is no limit on the number of years the lifetime learning credit can be claimed for each student. H&r block free tax file 2012   A tax credit reduces the amount of income tax you may have to pay. H&r block free tax file 2012 Unlike a deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax, a credit directly reduces the tax itself. H&r block free tax file 2012 The lifetime learning credit is a nonrefundable credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 This means that it can reduce your tax to zero, but if the credit is more than your tax the excess will not be refunded to you. H&r block free tax file 2012   Your allowable lifetime learning credit may be limited by the amount of your income and the amount of your tax. H&r block free tax file 2012 Can you claim more than one education credit this year. H&r block free tax file 2012   For each student, you can elect for any year only one of the credits. H&r block free tax file 2012 For example, if you elect to take the lifetime learning credit for a child on your 2013 tax return, you cannot, for that same child, also claim the American opportunity credit for 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you are eligible to claim the lifetime learning credit and you are also eligible to claim the American opportunity credit for the same student in the same year, you can choose to claim either credit, but not both. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you pay qualified education expenses for more than one student in the same year, you can choose to take certain credits on a per-student, per-year basis. H&r block free tax file 2012 This means that, for example, you can claim the American opportunity credit for one student and the lifetime learning credit for another student in the same year. H&r block free tax file 2012 Differences between the American opportunity and lifetime learning credits. H&r block free tax file 2012   There are several differences between these two credits. H&r block free tax file 2012 For example, you can claim the American opportunity credit for the same student for no more than 4 tax years, but any year in which the Hope Scholarship Credit was claimed counts toward the 4 years. H&r block free tax file 2012 However, there is no limit on the number of years for which you can claim a lifetime learning credit based on the same student's expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 The differences between these credits are shown in Appendix B, Highlights of Education Tax Benefits for Tax Year 2013 near the end of this publication. H&r block free tax file 2012 Overview of the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012   See Table 3-1, Overview of the Lifetime Learning Credit for the basics of the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 The details are discussed in this chapter. H&r block free tax file 2012 Can You Claim the Credit The following rules will help you determine if you are eligible to claim the lifetime learning credit on your tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 Who Can Claim the Credit Generally, you can claim the lifetime learning credit if all three of the following requirements are met. H&r block free tax file 2012 You pay qualified education expenses of higher education. H&r block free tax file 2012 You pay the education expenses for an eligible student. H&r block free tax file 2012 The eligible student is either yourself, your spouse, or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 Table 3-1. H&r block free tax file 2012 Overview of the Lifetime Learning Credit Maximum credit Up to $2,000 credit per return Limit on modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) $127,000 if married filling jointly;  $63,000 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) Refundable or nonrefundable Nonrefundable—credit limited to the amount of tax you must pay on your taxable income Number of years of postsecondary education Available for all years of postsecondary education and for courses to acquire or improve job skills Number of tax years credit available Available for an unlimited number of years Type of program required Student does not need to be pursuing a program leading to a degree or other recognized education credential Number of courses Available for one or more courses Felony drug conviction Felony drug convictions do not make the student ineligible Qualified expenses Tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance (including amounts required to be paid to the institution for course-related books, supplies, and equipment) Payments for academic periods Payments made in 2013 for academic periods beginning in 2013 or beginning in the first 3 months of 2014 Note. H&r block free tax file 2012 Qualified education expenses paid by a dependent for whom you claim an exemption, or by a third party for that dependent, are considered paid by you. H&r block free tax file 2012 “Qualified education expenses” are defined later under Qualified Education Expenses . H&r block free tax file 2012 “Eligible students” are defined later under Who Is an Eligible Student . H&r block free tax file 2012 A dependent for whom you claim an exemption is defined later under Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses . H&r block free tax file 2012 You may find Figure 3-1, Can You Claim the Lifetime Learning Credit for 2013 , later, helpful in determining if you can claim a lifetime learning credit on your tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 Who Cannot Claim the Credit You cannot claim the lifetime learning credit for 2013 if any of the following apply. H&r block free tax file 2012 Your filing status is married filing separately. H&r block free tax file 2012 You are listed as a dependent on another person's tax return (such as your parents'). H&r block free tax file 2012 See Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses , later. H&r block free tax file 2012 Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is $63,000 or more ($127,000 or more in the case of a joint return). H&r block free tax file 2012 MAGI is explained later under Effect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Credit . H&r block free tax file 2012 You (or your spouse) were a nonresident alien for any part of 2013 and the nonresident alien did not elect to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes. H&r block free tax file 2012 More information on nonresident aliens can be found in Publication 519. H&r block free tax file 2012 You claim the American Opportunity Credit (see chapter 2) or a Tuition and Fees Deduction (see chapter 6) for the same student in 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012 What Expenses Qualify The lifetime learning credit is based on qualified education expenses you pay for yourself, your spouse, or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 Generally, the credit is allowed for qualified education expenses paid in 2013 for an academic period beginning in 2013 or in the first 3 months of 2014. H&r block free tax file 2012 For example, if you paid $1,500 in December 2013 for qualified tuition for the spring 2014 semester beginning in January 2014, you may be able to use that $1,500 in figuring your 2013 credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Academic period. H&r block free tax file 2012   An academic period includes a semester, trimester, quarter, or other period of study (such as a summer school session) as reasonably determined by an educational institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 In the case of an educational institution that uses credit hours or clock hours and does not have academic terms, each payment period can be treated as an academic period. H&r block free tax file 2012 Paid with borrowed funds. H&r block free tax file 2012   You can claim a lifetime learning credit for qualified education expenses paid with the proceeds of a loan. H&r block free tax file 2012 You use the expenses to figure the lifetime learning credit for the year in which the expenses are paid, not the year in which the loan is repaid. H&r block free tax file 2012 Treat loan disbursements sent directly to the educational institution as paid on the date the institution credits the student's account. H&r block free tax file 2012 Student withdraws from class(es). H&r block free tax file 2012   You can claim a lifetime learning credit for qualified education expenses not refunded when a student withdraws. H&r block free tax file 2012 Qualified Education Expenses For purposes of the lifetime learning credit, qualified education expenses are tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment in a course at an eligible educational institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 The course must be either part of a postsecondary degree program or taken by the student to acquire or improve job skills. H&r block free tax file 2012 Eligible educational institution. H&r block free tax file 2012   An eligible educational institution is any college, university, vocational school, or other postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U. H&r block free tax file 2012 S. H&r block free tax file 2012 Department of Education. H&r block free tax file 2012 It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. H&r block free tax file 2012 The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. H&r block free tax file 2012   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. H&r block free tax file 2012 S. H&r block free tax file 2012 Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. H&r block free tax file 2012 Related expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012   Student-activity fees and expenses for course-related books, supplies, and equipment are included in qualified education expenses only if the fees and expenses must be paid to the institution for enrollment or attendance. H&r block free tax file 2012 Prepaid expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012   Qualified education expenses paid in 2013 for an academic period that begins in the first three months of 2014 can be used in figuring an education credit for 2013 only. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Academic period , earlier. H&r block free tax file 2012 For example, you pay $2,000 in December 2013 for qualified tuition for the 2014 winter quarter that begins in January 2014, you can use that $2,000 in figuring an education credit for 2013 only (if you meet all the other requirements). H&r block free tax file 2012 You cannot use any amount you paid in 2012 or 2014 to figure the qualified education expenses you use to figure your 2013 education credit(s). H&r block free tax file 2012 In the following examples, assume that each student is an eligible student at an eligible educational institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 1. H&r block free tax file 2012   Jackson is a sophomore in University V's degree program in dentistry. H&r block free tax file 2012 This year, in addition to tuition, he is required to pay a fee to the university for the rental of the dental equipment he will use in this program. H&r block free tax file 2012 Because the equipment rental fee must be paid to University V for enrollment and attendance, Jackson's equipment rental fee is a qualified expense. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 2. H&r block free tax file 2012   Donna and Charles, both first-year students at College W, are required to have certain books and other reading materials to use in their mandatory first-year classes. H&r block free tax file 2012 The college has no policy about how students should obtain these materials, but any student who purchases them from College W's bookstore will receive a bill directly from the college. H&r block free tax file 2012 Charles bought his books from a friend, so what he paid for them is not a qualified education expense. H&r block free tax file 2012 Donna bought hers at College W's bookstore. H&r block free tax file 2012 Although Donna paid College W directly for her first-year books and materials, her payment is not a qualified expense because the books and materials are not required to be purchased from College W for enrollment or attendance at the institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 3. H&r block free tax file 2012   When Marci enrolled at College X for her freshman year, she had to pay a separate student activity fee in addition to her tuition. H&r block free tax file 2012 This activity fee is required of all students, and is used solely to fund on-campus organizations and activities run by students, such as the student newspaper and student government. H&r block free tax file 2012 No portion of the fee covers personal expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Although labeled as a student activity fee, the fee is required for Marci's enrollment and attendance at College X. H&r block free tax file 2012 Therefore, it is a qualified expense. H&r block free tax file 2012 No Double Benefit Allowed You cannot do any of the following: Deduct higher education expenses on your income tax return (as, for example, a business expense) and also claim a lifetime learning credit based on those same expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Claim a lifetime learning credit in the same year that you are claiming a tuition and fees deduction for the same student. H&r block free tax file 2012 Claim a lifetime learning credit and an American opportunity credit based on the same qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Claim a lifetime learning credit based on the same expenses used to figure the tax-free portion of a distribution from a Coverdell education savings account (ESA) or qualified tuition program (QTP). H&r block free tax file 2012 See Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account, and Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program. H&r block free tax file 2012 Claim a credit based on qualified education expenses paid with tax-free educational assistance, such as a scholarship, grant, or assistance provided by an employer.

H&r block free tax file 2012 Please click the link to view the image. H&r block free tax file 2012 Figure 3-1 Adjustments to Qualified Education Expenses For each student, reduce the qualified education expenses paid by or on behalf of that student under the following rules. H&r block free tax file 2012 The result is the amount of adjusted qualified education expenses for each student. H&r block free tax file 2012 Tax-free educational assistance. H&r block free tax file 2012   For tax-free educational assistance received in 2013, reduce the qualified educational expenses for each academic period by the amount of tax-free educational assistance allocable to that academic period. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Academic period , earlier. H&r block free tax file 2012   Some tax-free educational assistance received after 2013 may be treated as a refund of qualified education expenses paid in 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012 This tax-free educational assistance is any tax-free educational assistance received by you or anyone else after 2013 for qualified education expenses paid on behalf of a student in 2013 (or attributable to enrollment at an eligible educational institution during 2013). H&r block free tax file 2012   If this tax-free educational assistance is received after 2013 but before you file your 2013 income tax return, see Refunds received after 2013 but before your income tax return is filed , later. H&r block free tax file 2012 If this tax-free educational assistance is received after 2013 and after you file your 2013 income tax return, see Refunds received after 2013 and after your income tax return is filed , later. H&r block free tax file 2012   Tax-free educational assistance includes: The tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Pell grants (see Pell Grants and Other Title IV Need-Based Education Grants in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Employer-provided educational assistance (see chapter 11, Employer-Provided Educational Assistance ), Veterans' educational assistance (see Veterans' Benefits in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), and Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. H&r block free tax file 2012 Generally, any scholarship or fellowship is treated as tax free. H&r block free tax file 2012 However, a scholarship or fellowship is not treated as tax free to the extent the student includes it in gross income (if the student is required to file a tax return for the year the scholarship or fellowship is received) and either of the following is true. H&r block free tax file 2012 The scholarship or fellowship (or any part of it) must be applied (by its terms) to expenses (such as room and board) other than qualified education expenses as defined in Qualified education expenses in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. H&r block free tax file 2012 The scholarship or fellowship (or any part of it) may be applied (by its terms) to expenses (such as room and board) other than qualified education expenses as defined in Qualified education expenses in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. H&r block free tax file 2012 You may be able to increase the combined value of an education credit and certain educational assistance if the student includes some or all of the educational assistance in income in the year it is received. H&r block free tax file 2012 For examples, see Coordination with Pell grants and other scholarships, later. H&r block free tax file 2012 Refunds. H&r block free tax file 2012   A refund of qualified education expenses may reduce adjusted qualified education expenses for the tax year or require repayment (recapture) of a credit claimed in an earlier year. H&r block free tax file 2012 Some tax-free educational assistance received after 2013 may be treated as a refund. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Tax-free educational assistance , earlier. H&r block free tax file 2012 Refunds received in 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012   For each student, figure the adjusted qualified education expenses for 2013 by adding all the qualified education expenses for 2013 and subtracting any refunds of those expenses received from the eligible educational institution during 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012 Refunds received after 2013 but before your income tax return is filed. H&r block free tax file 2012   If anyone receives a refund after 2013 of qualified education expenses paid on behalf of a student in 2013 and the refund is paid before you file an income tax return for 2013, the amount of qualified education expenses for 2013 is reduced by the amount of the refund. H&r block free tax file 2012 Refunds received after 2013 and after your income tax return is filed. H&r block free tax file 2012   If anyone receives a refund after 2013 of qualified education expenses paid on behalf of a student in 2013 and the refund is paid after you file an income tax return for 2013, you may need to repay some or all of the credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Credit recapture, next. H&r block free tax file 2012 Credit recapture. H&r block free tax file 2012    If any tax-free educational assistance for the qualified education expenses paid in 2013 or any refund of your qualified education expenses paid in 2013 is received after you file your 2013 income tax return, you must recapture (repay) any excess credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 You do this by refiguring the amount of your adjusted qualified education expenses for 2013 by reducing the expenses by the amount of the refund or tax-free educational assistance. H&r block free tax file 2012 You then refigure your education credit(s) for 2013 and figure the amount by which your 2013 tax liability would have increased if you had claimed the refigured credit(s). H&r block free tax file 2012 Include that amount as an additional tax for the year the refund or tax-free assistance was received. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example. H&r block free tax file 2012   You pay $9,300 in tuition and fees in December 2013, and your child began college in January 2014. H&r block free tax file 2012 You filed your 2013 tax return on February 14, 2014, and claimed a lifetime learning credit of $1,860. H&r block free tax file 2012 You claimed no other tax credits. H&r block free tax file 2012 After you filed your return, your child withdrew from two courses and you received a refund of $2,900. H&r block free tax file 2012 You must refigure your 2013 lifetime learning credit using $6,400 of qualified education expenses instead of $9,300. H&r block free tax file 2012 The refigured credit is $1,280 and your tax liability increased by $580. H&r block free tax file 2012 See instructions for your 2014 income tax return to determine where to include this tax. H&r block free tax file 2012 If you pay qualified education expenses in 2014 for an academic period that begins in the first 3 months of 2014 and you receive tax-free educational assistance, or a refund, as described above, you may choose to reduce your qualified education expenses for 2014 instead of reducing your expenses for 2013. H&r block free tax file 2012 Amounts that do not reduce qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012   Do not reduce qualified education expenses by amounts paid with funds the student receives as: Payment for services, such as wages, A loan, A gift, An inheritance, or A withdrawal from the student's personal savings. H&r block free tax file 2012   Do not reduce the qualified education expenses by any scholarship or fellowship reported as income on the student's tax return in the following situations. H&r block free tax file 2012 The use of the money is restricted, by the terms of the scholarship or fellowship, to costs of attendance (such as room and board) other than qualified education expenses, as defined in Qualified education expenses in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. H&r block free tax file 2012 The use of the money is not restricted. H&r block free tax file 2012 For examples, see Adjustments to Qualified Education Expenses in chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Coordination with Pell grants and other scholarships. H&r block free tax file 2012   In some cases, you may be able to reduce your tax liability by including scholarships in income. H&r block free tax file 2012 If you are claiming an education credit for a claimed dependent who received a scholarship, you may be able to reduce your tax liability if the student includes the scholarship in income. H&r block free tax file 2012 The scholarship must be one that may (by its terms) be applied to expenses (such as room and board) other than qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 1—No scholarship. H&r block free tax file 2012 Judy Green, who is unmarried, is taking courses at a public community college to be recertified to teach in public schools. H&r block free tax file 2012 Her AGI and her MAGI, for purposes of the credit, are $27,000. H&r block free tax file 2012 Judy takes the standard deduction of $5,950 and personal exemption of $3,800, reducing her AGI to taxable income of $17,250 and her tax before credits is $2,156. H&r block free tax file 2012 She claims no credits other than the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 In July 2013 she paid $700 for the summer 2013 semester; in August 2013 she paid $1,900 for the fall 2013 semester; and in December 2013 she paid another $1,900 for the spring semester beginning in January 2014. H&r block free tax file 2012 Judy and the college meet all requirements for the lifetime learning tax credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 She can use all of the $4,500 tuition she paid in 2013 when figuring her 2013 lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 She claims a $900 lifetime learning credit and her tax after credits is $1,256. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 2—Scholarship excluded from income. H&r block free tax file 2012 The facts are the same as in Example 1—No scholarship, except that Judy was awarded a $1,500 scholarship. H&r block free tax file 2012 Under the terms of her scholarship, it may be used to pay any educational expenses, including room and board. H&r block free tax file 2012 If Judy excludes the scholarship from income, she will be deemed (for purposes of computing her education credit) as having used the scholarship to pay for tuition, required fees, and course materials. H&r block free tax file 2012 Only $3,000 of the $4,500 tuition she paid in 2013 could be used when figuring her 2013 lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Her lifetime learning credit would be reduced to $600 and her tax after credits would be $1,556. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example 3—Scholarship included in income. H&r block free tax file 2012 The facts are the same as in Example 2—Scholarship excluded from income. H&r block free tax file 2012 If, unlike Example 2, Judy includes the $1,500 scholarship in income, she will be deemed to have used the entire scholarship to pay for room and board. H&r block free tax file 2012 Judy's AGI will increase to $28,500, her taxable income would be $18,750, and her tax before credits would be $2,381. H&r block free tax file 2012 She would be able to use the $4,500 of adjusted qualified education expenses to figure her credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Judy could claim a $900 lifetime learning credit and her tax after credits would be $1,481. H&r block free tax file 2012 Expenses That Do Not Qualify Qualified education expenses do not include amounts paid for: Insurance, Medical expenses (including student health fees), Room and board, Transportation, or Similar personal, living, or family expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 This is true even if the amount must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance. H&r block free tax file 2012 Sports, games, hobbies, and noncredit courses. H&r block free tax file 2012   Qualified education expenses generally do not include expenses that relate to any course of instruction or other education that involves sports, games or hobbies, or any noncredit course. H&r block free tax file 2012 However, if the course of instruction or other education is part of the student's degree program or is taken by the student to acquire or improve job skills, these expenses can qualify. H&r block free tax file 2012 Comprehensive or bundled fees. H&r block free tax file 2012   Some eligible educational institutions combine all of their fees for an academic period into one amount. H&r block free tax file 2012 If you do not receive or do not have access to an allocation showing how much you paid for qualified education expenses and how much you paid for personal expenses, such as those listed above, contact the institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 The institution is required to make this allocation and provide you with the amount you paid (or were billed) for qualified education expenses on Form 1098-T. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Figuring the Credit , later, for more information about Form 1098-T. H&r block free tax file 2012 Who Is an Eligible Student For purposes of the lifetime learning credit, an eligible student is a student who is enrolled in one or more courses at an eligible educational institution (as defined under Qualified Education Expenses , earlier). H&r block free tax file 2012 Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses If there are qualified education expenses for your dependent during a tax year, either you or your dependent, but not both of you, can claim a lifetime learning credit for your dependent's expenses for that year. H&r block free tax file 2012 For you to claim a lifetime learning credit for your dependent's expenses, you must also claim an exemption for your dependent. H&r block free tax file 2012 You do this by listing your dependent's name and other required information on Form 1040 (or Form 1040A), line 6c. H&r block free tax file 2012 IF you. H&r block free tax file 2012 . H&r block free tax file 2012 . H&r block free tax file 2012 THEN only. H&r block free tax file 2012 . H&r block free tax file 2012 . H&r block free tax file 2012 claim an exemption on your tax return for a dependent who is an eligible student you can claim the lifetime learning credit based on that dependent's expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 The dependent cannot claim the credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 do not claim an exemption on your tax return for a dependent who is an eligible student (even if entitled to the exemption) the dependent can claim the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 You cannot claim the credit based on this dependent's expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Expenses paid by dependent. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you claim an exemption on your tax return for an eligible student who is your dependent, treat any expenses paid (or deemed paid) by your dependent as if you had paid them. H&r block free tax file 2012 Include these expenses when figuring the amount of your lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012    Qualified education expenses paid directly to an eligible educational institution for your dependent under a court-approved divorce decree are treated as paid by your dependent. H&r block free tax file 2012 Expenses paid by you. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you claim an exemption for a dependent who is an eligible student, only you can include any expenses you paid when figuring the amount of the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 If neither you nor anyone else claims an exemption for the dependent, only the dependent can include any expenses you paid when figuring the lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Expenses paid by others. H&r block free tax file 2012   Someone other than you, your spouse, or your dependent (such as a relative or former spouse) may make a payment directly to an eligible educational institution to pay for an eligible student's qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 In this case, the student is treated as receiving the payment from the other person and, in turn, paying the institution. H&r block free tax file 2012 If you claim an exemption on your tax return for the student, you are considered to have paid the expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example. H&r block free tax file 2012 In 2013, Ms. H&r block free tax file 2012 Allen makes a payment directly to an eligible educational institution for her grandson Todd's qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 For purposes of claiming a lifetime learning credit, Todd is treated as receiving the money from his grandmother and, in turn, paying his qualified education expenses himself. H&r block free tax file 2012 Unless an exemption for Todd is claimed on someone else's 2013 tax return, only Todd can use the payment to claim a lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 If anyone, such as Todd's parents, claims an exemption for Todd on his or her 2013 tax return, whoever claims the exemption may be able to use the expenses to claim a lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 If anyone else claims an exemption for Todd, Todd cannot claim a lifetime learning credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Tuition reduction. H&r block free tax file 2012   When an eligible educational institution provides a reduction in tuition to an employee of the institution (or spouse or dependent child of an employee), the amount of the reduction may or may not be taxable. H&r block free tax file 2012 If it is taxable, the employee is treated as receiving a payment of that amount and, in turn, paying it to the educational institution on behalf of the student. H&r block free tax file 2012 For more information on tuition reductions, see Qualified Tuition Reduction in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. H&r block free tax file 2012 Figuring the Credit The amount of the lifetime learning credit is 20% of the first $10,000 of qualified education expenses you paid for all eligible students. H&r block free tax file 2012 The maximum amount of lifetime learning credit you can claim for 2013 is $2,000 (20% × $10,000). H&r block free tax file 2012 However, that amount may be reduced based on your MAGI. H&r block free tax file 2012 See Effect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Credit , later. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example. H&r block free tax file 2012 Bruce and Toni Harper are married and file a joint tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 For 2013, their MAGI is $75,000. H&r block free tax file 2012 Toni is attending a local college (an eligible educational institution) to earn credits toward a degree in nursing. H&r block free tax file 2012 She already has a bachelor's degree in history and wants to become a nurse. H&r block free tax file 2012 In August 2013, Toni paid $5,000 of qualified education expenses for her fall 2013 semester. H&r block free tax file 2012 Bruce and Toni can claim a $1,000 (20% × $5,000) lifetime learning credit on their 2013 joint tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 Form 1098-T. H&r block free tax file 2012   To help you figure your lifetime learning credit, the student should receive Form 1098-T. H&r block free tax file 2012 Generally, an eligible educational institution (such as a college or university) must send Form 1098-T (or acceptable substitute) to each enrolled student by January 31, 2014. H&r block free tax file 2012 An institution may choose to report either payments received (box 1), or amounts billed (box 2), for qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 However, the amounts in boxes 1 and 2 of Form 1098-T might be different from what you paid. H&r block free tax file 2012 When figuring the credit, use only the amounts you paid or are deemed to have paid in 2013 for qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012   In addition, Form 1098-T should give other information for that institution, such as adjustments made for prior years, the amount of scholarships or grants, reimbursements or refunds, and whether the student was enrolled at least half-time or was a graduate student. H&r block free tax file 2012    The eligible educational institution may ask for a completed Form W-9S, or similar statement to obtain the student's name, address, and taxpayer identification number. H&r block free tax file 2012 Effect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Credit The amount of your lifetime learning credit is phased out (gradually reduced) if your MAGI is between $53,000 and $63,000 ($107,000 and $127,000 if you file a joint return). H&r block free tax file 2012 You cannot claim a lifetime learning credit if your MAGI is $63,000 or more ($127,000 or more if you file a joint return). H&r block free tax file 2012 Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). H&r block free tax file 2012   For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return. H&r block free tax file 2012 MAGI when using Form 1040A. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you file Form 1040A, your MAGI is the AGI on line 22 of that form. H&r block free tax file 2012 MAGI when using Form 1040. H&r block free tax file 2012   If you file Form 1040, your MAGI is the AGI on line 38 of that form, modified by adding back any: Foreign earned income exclusion, Foreign housing exclusion, Foreign housing deduction, Exclusion of income by bona fide residents of American Samoa, and Exclusion of income by bona fide residents of Puerto Rico. H&r block free tax file 2012 You can use Worksheet 3-1 to figure your MAGI. H&r block free tax file 2012 Worksheet 3-1. H&r block free tax file 2012 MAGI for the Lifetime Learning Credit 1. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter your adjusted gross income  (Form 1040, line 38)   1. H&r block free tax file 2012   2. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter your foreign earned income exclusion and/or housing exclusion (Form 2555, line 45, or Form 2555-EZ, line 18)   2. H&r block free tax file 2012       3. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter your foreign housing deduction (Form 2555, line 50)   3. H&r block free tax file 2012       4. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter the amount of income from Puerto Rico you are excluding   4. H&r block free tax file 2012       5. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter the amount of income from American Samoa you are excluding (Form 4563, line 15)   5. H&r block free tax file 2012       6. H&r block free tax file 2012 Add the amounts on lines 2, 3, 4, and 5   6. H&r block free tax file 2012   7. H&r block free tax file 2012 Add the amounts on lines 1 and 6. H&r block free tax file 2012  This is your modified adjusted  gross income. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter this amount  on Form 8863, line 14   7. H&r block free tax file 2012   Phaseout. H&r block free tax file 2012   If your MAGI is within the range of incomes where the credit must be reduced, you will figure your reduced credit using lines 10-18 of Form 8863. H&r block free tax file 2012 The same method is shown in the following example. H&r block free tax file 2012 Example. H&r block free tax file 2012 You are filing a joint return with a MAGI of $112,000. H&r block free tax file 2012 In 2013, you paid $6,600 of qualified education expenses. H&r block free tax file 2012 You figure the tentative lifetime learning credit (20% of the first $10,000 of qualified education expenses you paid for all eligible students). H&r block free tax file 2012 The result is a $1,320 (20% x $6,600) tentative credit. H&r block free tax file 2012 Because your MAGI is within the range of incomes where the credit must be reduced, you must multiply your tentative credit ($1,320) by a fraction. H&r block free tax file 2012 The numerator of the fraction is $127,000 (the upper limit for those filing a joint return) minus your MAGI. H&r block free tax file 2012 The denominator is $20,000, the range of incomes for the phaseout ($107,000 to $127,000). H&r block free tax file 2012 The result is the amount of your phased out (reduced) lifetime learning credit ($990). H&r block free tax file 2012   $1,320 × $127,000 − $112,000  $20,000 = $990   Claiming the Credit You claim the lifetime learning credit by completing Form 8863 and submitting it with your Form 1040 or 1040A. H&r block free tax file 2012 Enter the credit on Form 1040, line 49, or Form 1040A, line 31. H&r block free tax file 2012 Note. H&r block free tax file 2012 In Appendix A, Illustrated Example of Education Credits at the end of this publication, there is an example illustrating the use of Form 8863 when both the American opportunity credit and the lifetime learning credit are claimed on the same tax return.
