Judy Green, a single taxpayer, is taking courses at a community college (not in a Midwestern disaster area) to be recertified to teach in public schools. Her MAGI is $27,000. Her tax, before credits, is $2,200. In July 2008 she pays $700 for the Summer 2008 semester; in August 2008 she pays $1,900 for the Fall 2008 semester; and in December 2008 she pays another $1,900 for the Spring semester beginning January 2009. Judy and the college meet all the requirements for the lifetime learning credit. She can use all of the $4,500 tuition she paid in 2008 when figuring her credit for her 2008 tax return. She figures her credit as shown on the filled-in Form 8863 on the next page.
Note. In Appendix A at the end of this publication, there is an example illustrating the use of Form 8863 when both the Hope credit and the lifetime learning credit are claimed on the same tax return.
