    Client paid tuition in the following year

    Taxpayer paid their tuition for 2016 in March 2017, the student was billed in 2016 can I take the deduction in 2016, even though the bill was paid in 2017?
    Thank you,

    Nope. Sorry.

    Publication 970: You can't use any amount you paid in 2016 or 2018 to figure the qualified education expenses you use to figure your 2017 education credit(s).
