Education expenses for grades K-12, including private school tuition and uniforms, are not deductible on your federal tax return. If your state offers an education deduction for K-12, it will be addressed during the state tax interview.

Preschool is considered child care by the IRS, so if your child attends preschool so you can work the tuition may qualify for the Child and Dependent Care Credit.

Private school tuition for post-secondary education may qualify for an education credit or deduction.
