    Trade tech schools

    Can trade tech schools be claimed on tax return. I have a 17 year old daughter that's taking a cosmetology class at East Valley Institute of Technology. $1,150 was paid for supplies and tuition. The American Opportunity Credit for Qualifying Education List lists Undergraduates and graduate study and I'm wonder what form to fill out?

    Some references (may not be all inclusive to your scenario):

    The Tax Book 12-4 Eligible Students

    https://www.irs.gov/credits-deductio...ucational-inst - this mentions "Trade Schools"

    American Opportunity Credit vs Lifetime Learning Credit comparison:

    NOTE: You can also do a "search" on this website for the same topic which has been posted in the past for additional information

      Also, make sure there were no other out of pocket expenses. I know uniforms are requried (at least they used to be) and are integral to the program. $4,000 is the magic number to max the benefit.
