I have been paying for private school, which my children attend. Is there a tax credit for private school that I am able to claim?
Probably not. There’s no federal education credit or deduction when paying for private school at the elementary or secondary level. However, you can claim a tax credit for private school if you pay for your children’s college tuition.
If your children are young, you could consider opening an educational savings account (ESA). ESAs grow tax-free, and you can use them to pay for elementary and secondary education expenses.
