Tax Policy

  • A number of higher education tax incentives have been instituted over the years to help students and families offset the cost of a college education, which ACE works to maintain and in some cases, enhance. Chief among these incentives are the American Opportunity Tax Credit, the above-the-line deduction for qualified tuition and related expenses, the IRA Charitable Rollover, and the research and development tax credit. Others include Sec. 127 employer-provided education expenses, the Student Loan Interest Deduction, and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts.
  • There also is a movement in Congress supported by ACE to reform current tax incentives to create a simpler, consolidated higher education tax credit that would be a stronger, more effective tool for increasing access to college.
