Is room and board deductible?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1602Updated 2 weeks ago

Generally, no. Room and board usually isn't considered a qualified education expense for the purpose of education credits.

The one exception is if room and board was paid for with a Coverdell ESA or 529 plan distribution. In that case, the cost can be deducted from the taxable part of the plan's distribution.
