Irs federal tax tables 2012 Sin embargo, no puede deducir una pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo que esté cubierta por seguro a menos que haya presentado oportunamente una reclamación de reembolso al seguro. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Todo reembolso que usted reciba reducirá la cantidad de la pérdida. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Si no presentó una reclamación de reembolso al seguro, puede deducir únicamente la porción de la pérdida que no haya sido protegida por dicho seguro. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Cantidad de la pérdida. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Calcule la cantidad de su pérdida de la siguiente forma: Determine su costo u otra base en la propiedad antes del hecho fortuito o robo. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Determine la disminución en el valor justo de mercado de la propiedad como resultado del hecho fortuito o robo. Irs federal tax tables 2012 (La disminución del valor justo de mercado es la diferencia entre el valor de la propiedad inmediatamente antes e inmediatamente después del hecho fortuito o robo). Irs federal tax tables 2012 De la cantidad menor de los puntos anteriores (1) y (2), reste todo reembolso del seguro o de otra fuente que usted haya recibido o espere recibir. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Aplique los límites a la deducción, explicados más adelante, para determinar la cantidad de su pérdida deducible. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Costo u otra base. Irs federal tax tables 2012   El costo u otra base significa generalmente el costo original más toda mejora realizada a la propiedad. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Si no adquirió la propiedad por medio de una compra, su base se determina según se explica en la Publicación 551, Basis of Assets (Base de los Bienes), en inglés. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Si usted heredó propiedad de alguien que falleció en 2010 y el albacea del caudal hereditario eligió presentar el Formulario 8939, favor de referirse a la información proporcionada por el albacea, o vea la Publicación 4895, Tax Treatment of Property Acquired from a Decedent Dying in 2010 (Trato tributario de la propiedad adquirida de un difunto que falleció en 2010), en inglés. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Valor justo de mercado. Irs federal tax tables 2012   El valor justo de mercado (FMV, por sus siglas en inglés) es el precio por el cual podría vender su propiedad a una persona dispuesta a comprarla, cuando ninguno de los dos tiene que vender o comprar y ambos están informados de todos los hechos pertinentes. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Al llenar los Anexos 1 al 20, se necesita saber el valor justo de mercado de la propiedad inmediatamente antes e inmediatamente después del desastre, hecho fortuito o robo. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Cálculos separados. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Generalmente, si un solo hecho fortuito o robo involucra más de un artículo de propiedad, usted tiene que calcular la pérdida de cada artículo por separado. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Luego, sume las pérdidas para determinar la pérdida total de ese hecho fortuito o robo. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Excepción en el caso de propiedad inmueble de uso personal. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Para calcular una pérdida de bienes inmuebles (bienes raíces) de uso personal, la propiedad entera (incluidas todas las mejoras como edificios, árboles y arbustos) se considera una unidad. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Calcule la pérdida utilizando la menor de las siguientes cantidades: La disminución en el valor justo de mercado de toda la propiedad. Irs federal tax tables 2012 La base ajustada de toda la propiedad. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Límites de la deducción. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Después de calcular la cantidad de su pérdida según la explicación anterior, tiene que calcular qué cantidad de la pérdida puede deducir. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Esto se hace en la sección A del Formulario 4684, en inglés. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Si la pérdida fue de bienes de uso personal o de su familia, existen dos límites sobre la cantidad que puede deducir como pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo: Tiene que reducir cada pérdida por hecho fortuito o robo por $100 (la regla de $100). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Tiene que reducir además el total de todas sus pérdidas por 10% de su ingreso bruto ajustado (la regla del 10%). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Más información. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Vea la Publicación 547(SP) para más información sobre los límites de esta deducción. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Cuándo su pérdida es deducible. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Normalmente, puede deducir una pérdida por hecho fortuito, o aquélla sufrida en una zona de desastre, sólo en el año tributario en el que aconteció el hecho fortuito o desastre. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Normalmente puede deducir una pérdida por robo de propiedad sólo en el año en el que descubrió dicho robo. Irs federal tax tables 2012 No obstante, tiene la opción de deducir las pérdidas sufridas en una zona de desastre en la declaración del año inmediatamente antes del año del desastre si el Presidente de los Estados Unidos ha declarado dicha área como zona de desastre federal. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Para más información, vea el tema Pérdidas en Zonas de Desastre en la Publicación 547(SP). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Comentarios y sugerencias.

Irs federal tax tables 2012 You cannot claim this deduction if your filing status is married filing separately or if another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The qualified expenses must be for higher education, as explained later under Qualified Education Expenses . Irs federal tax tables 2012 What is the tax benefit of the tuition and fees deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012   The tuition and fees deduction can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $4,000. Irs federal tax tables 2012   This deduction is taken as an adjustment to income. Irs federal tax tables 2012 This means you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). Irs federal tax tables 2012 This deduction may be beneficial to you if you do not qualify for the American opportunity or lifetime learning credits. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You can choose the education benefit that will give you the lowest tax. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You may want to compare the tuition and fees deduction to the education credits. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit and chapter 3, Lifetime Learning Credit for more information on the education credits. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Table 6-1. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Tuition and Fees Deduction at a Glance summarizes the features of the tuition and fees deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Can You Claim the Deduction The following rules will help you determine if you can claim the tuition and fees deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Who Can Claim the Deduction Generally, you can claim the tuition and fees deduction if all three of the following requirements are met. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You pay qualified education expenses of higher education. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You pay the education expenses for an eligible student. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The eligible student is yourself, your spouse, or your dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The term “qualified education expenses” is defined later under Qualified Education Expenses . Irs federal tax tables 2012 “Eligible student” is defined later under Who Is an Eligible Student . Irs federal tax tables 2012 For more information on claiming the deduction for a dependent, see Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses , later. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Table 6-1. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Tuition and Fees Deduction at a Glance Do not rely on this table alone. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refer to the text for complete details. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Question Answer What is the maximum benefit? You can reduce your income subject to tax by up to $4,000. Irs federal tax tables 2012 What is the limit on modified adjusted gross income (MAGI)? $160,000 if married filing a joint return; $80,000 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Where is the deduction taken? As an adjustment to income on  Form 1040 or Form 1040A. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For whom must the expenses be paid? A student enrolled in an eligible educational institution who is either: •you,  •your spouse, or  •your dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Irs federal tax tables 2012 What tuition and fees are deductible? Tuition and fees required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible postsecondary educational institution, but not including personal, living, or family expenses, such as room and board. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Who Cannot Claim the Deduction You cannot claim the tuition and fees deduction if any of the following apply. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Your filing status is married filing separately. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Another person can claim an exemption for you as a dependent on his or her tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You cannot take the deduction even if the other person does not actually claim that exemption. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is more than $80,000 ($160,000 if filing a joint return). Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 More information on nonresident aliens can be found in Publication 519. Irs federal tax tables 2012 What Expenses Qualify The tuition and fees deduction 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Generally, the deduction is allowed for qualified education expenses paid in 2013 in connection with enrollment at an institution of higher education during 2013 or for an academic period beginning in 2013 or in the first 3 months of 2014. Irs federal tax tables 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 deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Academic period. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Paid with borrowed funds. Irs federal tax tables 2012   You can claim a tuition and fees deduction for qualified education expenses paid with the proceeds of a loan. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Use the expenses to figure the deduction for the year in which the expenses are paid, not the year in which the loan is repaid. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Treat loan disbursements sent directly to the educational institution as paid on the date the institution credits the student's account. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Student withdraws from class(es). Irs federal tax tables 2012   You can claim a tuition and fees deduction for qualified education expenses not refunded when a student withdraws. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Qualified Education Expenses For purposes of the tuition and fees deduction, qualified education expenses are tuition and certain related expenses required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Eligible educational institution. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 S. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Department of Education. Irs federal tax tables 2012 It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. Irs federal tax tables 2012 S. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Related expenses. Irs federal tax tables 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 as a condition of enrollment or attendance. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Prepaid expenses. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Academic period , earlier. Irs federal tax tables 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). Irs federal tax tables 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). Irs federal tax tables 2012 In the following examples, assume that each student is an eligible student and each college or university an eligible educational institution. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example 1. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Jackson is a sophomore in University V's degree program in dentistry. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Because the equipment rental fee must be paid to University V for enrollment and attendance, Jackson's equipment rental fee is a qualified education expense. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example 2. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Charles bought his books from a friend, so what he paid for them is not a qualified education expense. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Donna bought hers at College W's bookstore. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Although Donna paid College W directly for her first-year books and materials, her payment is not a qualified education expense because the books and materials are not required to be purchased from College W for enrollment or attendance at the institution. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example 3. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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 the student government. Irs federal tax tables 2012 No portion of the fee covers personal expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Although labeled as a student activity fee, the fee is required for Marci's enrollment and attendance at College X. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Therefore, it is a qualified expense. Irs federal tax tables 2012 No Double Benefit Allowed You cannot do any of the following. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Deduct qualified education expenses you deduct under any other provision of the law, for example, as a business expense. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Deduct qualified education expenses for a student on your income tax return if you or anyone else claims an American opportunity or lifetime learning credit for that same student in the same year. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Deduct qualified education expenses that have been used to figure the tax-free portion of a distribution from a Coverdell education savings account (ESA) or a qualified tuition program (QTP). Irs federal tax tables 2012 For a QTP, this applies only to the amount of tax-free earnings that were distributed, not to the recovery of contributions to the program. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Coordination With Tuition and Fees Deduction in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program, later. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Deduct qualified education expenses that have been paid with tax-free interest on U. Irs federal tax tables 2012 S. Irs federal tax tables 2012 savings bonds (Form 8815). Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Figuring the Tax-Free Amount in chapter 10, Education Savings Bond Program, later. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Deduct qualified education expenses that have been paid with tax-free educational assistance, such as a scholarship, grant, or assistance provided by an employer. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See the following section on Adjustments to Qualified Education Expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The result is the amount of adjusted qualified education expenses for each student. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You must also reduce qualified education expenses by the other amounts referred to in No Double Benefit Allowed , earlier. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Tax-free educational assistance. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Academic period , earlier. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Some tax-free educational assistance received after 2013 may be treated as a refund of qualified education expenses paid in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 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). Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012   This tax-free education 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Generally, any scholarship or fellowship is treated as tax free. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For details, see Adjustments to Qualified Education Expenses in chapters 2 and 3. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refunds. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Some tax-free educational assistance received after 2013 may be treated as a refund. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Tax-free educational assistance , earlier. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refunds received in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refunds received after 2013 but before your income tax return is filed. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refunds received after 2013 and after your income tax return is filed. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Credit recapture , later. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Coordination with Coverdell education savings accounts and qualified tuition programs. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Reduce your qualified education expenses by any qualified education expenses used to figure the exclusion from gross income of (a) interest received under an education savings bond program, or (b) any distribution from a Coverdell education savings account or qualified tuition program (QTP). Irs federal tax tables 2012 For a QTP, this applies only to the amount of tax-free earnings that were distributed, not to the recovery of contributions to the program. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Credit recapture. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You do this by refiguring the amount of your adjusted qualified education expenses for 2013 by reducing that amount by the amount of the refund or tax-free educational assistance. Irs federal tax tables 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). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Include that amount as an additional tax for the year the refund or tax-free assistance was received. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example. Irs federal tax tables 2012   You paid $3,500 of qualified education expenses in December 2013, and your child began college in January 2014. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You claimed $3,500 as the tuition and fees deduction on your 2013 income tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The reduction reduced your taxable income by $3,500. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Also, you claimed no tax credits in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Your child withdrew from two classes and you received a refund of $2,000 in 2014 after you filed your 2013 tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Refigure your 2013 tuition and fees deduction using $1,500 of qualified education expense instead of the $3,500. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The refigured tuition and fees deduction is $1,500. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Do not file an amended 2013 tax return to account for this adjustment. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Instead, include the difference of $2,000 (but only to the extent this difference would have increased your 2013 tax) on the “Other income” line of your 2014 Form 1040. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You cannot file Form 1040A for 2014. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Amounts that do not reduce qualified education expenses. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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 Restrictions. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The use of the money is not restricted. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example 1. Irs federal tax tables 2012 In 2013, Jackie paid $3,000 for tuition and $5,000 for room and board at University X. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The university did not require her to pay any fees in addition to her tuition in order to enroll in or attend classes. Irs federal tax tables 2012 To help pay these costs, she was awarded a $2,000 scholarship and a $4,000 student loan. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The terms of the scholarship state that it can be used to pay any of Jackie's college expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 University X applies the $2,000 scholarship against Jackie's $8,000 total bill, and Jackie pays the $6,000 balance of her bill from University X with a combination of her student loan and her savings. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Jackie does not report any portion of the scholarship as income on her tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 In figuring the tuition and fees deduction, Jackie must reduce her qualified education expenses by the amount of the scholarship ($2,000) because she excluded the entire scholarship from her income. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The student loan is not tax-free educational assistance, so she does not need to reduce her qualified expenses by any part of the loan proceeds. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Jackie is treated as having paid $1,000 in qualified education expenses ($3,000 tuition – $2,000 scholarship) in 2013. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example 2. Irs federal tax tables 2012 The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that Jackie reports her entire scholarship as income on her tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Because Jackie reported the entire $2,000 scholarship in her income, she does not need to reduce her qualified education expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Jackie is treated as having paid $3,000 in qualified education expenses. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 This is true even if the amount must be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Sports, games, hobbies, and noncredit courses. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 However, if the course of instruction or other education is part of the student's degree program, these expenses can qualify. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Comprehensive or bundled fees. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Some eligible educational institutions combine all of their fees for an academic period into one amount. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 See Figuring the Deduction , later, for more information about Form 1098-T. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Who Is an Eligible Student For purposes of the tuition and fees deduction, 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). Irs federal tax tables 2012 Who Can Claim a Dependent's Expenses Generally, in order to claim the tuition and fees deduction for qualified education expenses for a dependent, you must: Have paid the expenses, and Claim an exemption for the student as a dependent. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For you to be able to deduct qualified education expenses for your dependent, you must claim an exemption for that individual. Irs federal tax tables 2012 You do this by listing your dependent's name and other required information on Form 1040 (or Form 1040A), line 6c. Irs federal tax tables 2012 IF your dependent is an eligible student and you. Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 AND. Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 THEN. Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 . Irs federal tax tables 2012 claim an exemption for your dependent you paid all qualified education expenses for your dependent only you can deduct the qualified education expenses that you paid. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Your dependent cannot take a deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 claim an exemption for your dependent your dependent paid all qualified education expenses no one is allowed to take a deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 do not claim an exemption for your dependent you paid all qualified education expenses no one is allowed to take a deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 do not claim an exemption for your dependent your dependent paid all qualified education expenses no one is allowed to take a deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Expenses paid by dependent. Irs federal tax tables 2012   If your dependent pays qualified education expenses, no one can take a tuition and fees deduction for those expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Neither you nor your dependent can deduct the expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For purposes of the tuition and fees deduction, you are not treated as paying any expenses actually paid by a dependent for whom you or anyone other than the dependent can claim an exemption. Irs federal tax tables 2012 This rule applies even if you do not claim an exemption for your dependent on your tax return. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Expenses paid by you. Irs federal tax tables 2012   If you claim an exemption for a dependent who is an eligible student, only you can include any expenses you paid when figuring your tuition and fees deduction. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Expenses paid under divorce decree. Irs federal tax tables 2012   Qualified education expenses paid directly to an eligible educational institution for a student under a court-approved divorce decree are treated as paid by the student. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Only the student would be eligible to take a tuition and fees deduction for that payment, and then only if no one else could claim an exemption for the student. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Expenses paid by others. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 In this case, the student is treated as receiving the payment from the other person and, in turn, paying the institution. Irs federal tax tables 2012 If you claim, or can claim, an exemption on your tax return for the student, you are not considered to have paid the expenses and you cannot deduct them. Irs federal tax tables 2012 If the student is not a dependent, only the student can deduct payments made directly to the institution for his or her expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 If the student is your dependent, no one can deduct the payments. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Example. Irs federal tax tables 2012 In 2013, Ms. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Baker makes a payment directly to an eligible educational institution for her grandson Dan's qualified education expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For purposes of deducting tuition and fees, Dan is treated as receiving the money from his grandmother and, in turn, paying his own qualified education expenses. Irs federal tax tables 2012 If an exemption cannot be claimed for Dan on anyone else's tax return, only Dan can claim a tuition and fees deduction for his grandmother's payment. Irs federal tax tables 2012 If someone else can claim an exemption for Dan, no one will be allowed a deduction for Ms. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Baker's payment. Irs federal tax tables 2012 Tuition reduction. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 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. Irs federal tax tables 2012 For more information on tuition reductions, see Qualified Tuition Reduction , in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions.
