IRS: Remember to save your receipts, records
With the new school year now under way, the Internal Revenue Service reminds teachers, parents and students that saving receipts and keeping good records can help them take advantage of various education-related deductions and credits on their 2007 federal income tax return.
“The start of the school year is a good time to remind parents, students and teachers to save all receipts related to tax-advantaged education expenses,” IRS Acting Commissioner Linda Stiff said. “Good recordkeeping makes sense because it can help avoid missing a deduction or credit at tax time.”
