Question: If the amount of my qualified tuition and related expenses is greater than the amount of my scholarship, may I claim the excess expenses on Form 8863?
Yes, fill out Form 8863 (.pdf), Education Credits (American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits).
- You must reduce the total qualified expenses by the amount of any tax-free educational assistance.
