Update to 2015 Form 8863, Education Credits -- 09-Feb-2016

The Trade Preferences Extension Act of 2015 made the following rule effective immediately for fiscal year filers.

For fiscal year filers, whose tax year begins after June 29, 2015, Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement, is required to claim the American opportunity credit or lifetime learning credit on their 2015 Form 8863. Calendar year filers aren't affected by this new rule until they file their 2016 Form 8863 in 2017.
