    my tax professional is not liking the fact that the USMMA does not send out a 1098 T, therefore is suggesting we not take the credit we pay for the mids expenses..... it is a bill, and it needs to be paid as a condition of them attending the school.

    What do the other USMMA parent do?

    What does your tax professional tell you?

    In the past I have taken the credit because I did my own taxes with Turbo Tax, but now we have this "professional" :cool:

    What is the bill for- tuition or room and board?
    You can't take the credit for room and board, only for "qualifying expences" - tuition, books.

    You cannot take a deduction for the following:

    • Room and board, insurance, medical expenses (including student health fees), transportation or other similar personal, living or family expenses

    • Course-related books, supplies, equipment and nonacademic activities, except for fees required to be paid to the institution as a condition of enrollment or attendance

    • Any course involving sports, games or hobbies, unless such course is part of the student's degree program
