My issue is similar to
but I have not enough reputation to comment there.
Megacorp paid my tuition. They made the payment directly to the school and not me. The amount was not included on my W2 and I did not deduct educational expenses over the years.
Now I left the company, and I may need to pay back a portion of the amount that they paid towards my degree. The payback is requested because of "wage overpayment". Question: should I deduct this amount from my W2 income or should I claim an educational expense deduction?
How would I do the former if that is the right thing to do?
