IRS Publishes Reminder About School Tax Deductions

Just a few weeks after the new school year started, the IRS is already putting out a press release reminding teachers, parents, and student alike about the valuable education related tax deductions. The IRS warns that it’s important to save your receipts and to keep detailed records so that it will be easier to take advantage of the valuable deductions on your next income tax returns.

"The start of the school year is a good time to remind parents, students and teachers to save all receipts related to tax-advantaged education expenses," said IRS Acting Commissioner Linda Stiff. "Good recordkeeping makes sense because it can help avoid missing a deduction or credit at tax time."

For more information on the education related expenses available to you, check out IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education. According to the IRS it can "help eligible parents and students understand the special rules that apply and decide which tax break to claim."
