Dependents

To claim the credit for a student's qualified expenses, the taxpayer must claim the dependent on the return. Qualified education expenses paid by a dependent for whom the taxpayer can claim an exemption, or by a third party for that dependent, are considered paid by the taxpayer.

For more information, refer to Education Credits in the Volunteer Resource Guide, Education Benefits tab.
