Educational Tax Benefits
Can I claim both the Lifetime Learning tax credit and a American Opportunity credit in the same tax year?
For the same student, you cannot claim the Lifetime Learning Credit and the American Opportunity credit in the same year. You may claim each of the credits for a different student in your family.
