Tax Credits for Students: There are tax credits available to students – including the American Opportunity Tax Credit which is available to students who are at least half time, are within their first four years of college, and who do not have a felony drug conviction. This is available even if you pay tuition with loans, but not if you pay with scholarships or grants.
