Tuition and Fees Deduction

The tuition and fees deduction reduced the amount of your taxable income by up to $4,000 . The deduction expired on Dec. 31, 2013. This deduction was an adjustment to income. So, you could claim the deduction even if you didn't itemize deductions.

The tuition and fees deduction covered the same expenses as the American Opportunity Credit and Lifetime Learning Credit. So, you could either claim the deduction or one of the education credits. However, you couldn't claim the deduction and a credit for the same student.
