Tax question
« on: November 17, 2007, 02:48:38 PM »
random 1 L tax question.

Can 1Ls take the lifetime learning credit of 2K (20% of Ed. related expenses up to 2K)?  This would be ridiculously cool to be able to apply the LLC to my tax burden from my job for 9 months before law school...basically like getting a check for 2 grand which would, at this point, be VERYYYY helpful.

I'm pretty sure you can;  I use turbo tax to do my taxes, and it's let me take the LLC for the last 2 yrs (I'm a 3L now).  If we're not supposed to take it, then I may have some tax issues at some point.   :-\

Yes, you can take it.
