"Have you heard about the Tax Breaks for Higher Education, such as the HOPE Scholarship and Lifetime Learning Credits? The University of Illinois Extension service has a good site, which is a guide to the variety of tax breaks available to make higher education more affordable. It is written in very understandable terms. This is a good resource, particularly for those middle-income taxpayer families who may have some college savings and/or find that the only breaks they'll get on tuition are those coming from a reduction in taxes."
