College student w/o w-2 but can I file tax to get college tuition credits back?
Asked Apr 5, 2008, 10:03 AM
Hi, I am a college student with no job income(no W-2 form) but do have few dollars of interest earned from saving account(1099-INT form). I know I do not have to file tax return since the income is extremely low. But I heard if I file tax return then I can get few hundreds of college tuition credits back since I paid almost $25000 for my tuition last year. I paid out of my own ocket, not from my parents or others. I live in New York City and I do not know if it makes any difference. Thanks so much for any input!
