My daughter needs to prove her education expenses for the education credits she received on her 2014 taxes. This was her first year filing taxes and she did use a tax lady. The tax lady has told us we need to show receipts for her registration etc. as well as books, supplies etc. to confirm she was in college and the money spent on that.
The problem we are having is that her tax papers start off with an adjusted qualified education expenses number that does not add up to the receipts my daughter had/has so we are not sure if there is an adjustment that is made for this or if these numbers are supposed to match precisely, and if so, we need to figure out why they don't.
I am hoping we just need to show and prove that she was in college and what her expenses were to keep the education credit and not that the education credit amount will change if her receipts are $200 off.
