Guest Author - Kate Woods

DogEared Corners, those folded corners of book pages are to prompt yourself or someone else to read an item or a fact, or a tip or note on that page. Visit my DogEared Corners pages for Tax Facts & Tips Etc. where I will be posting interesting items that I come across in the land of tax preparation and that I would DogEar for future reference because I think they might be of interest to many taxpayers.

•For 2007 the phase out income limits for the Hope and Lifetime Learning Education Credits have been increased. The credit is phased out or gradually reduced if your modified adjusted gross income is between $47,000 and $57,000 ($94,000 and $114,000 if you file a joint return.). So for your 2007 tax returns if your MAGI is $57,000 or higher ($114,000 or higher if you file a joint return you are not eligible to claim either of these education credits. These limits are increases from the 2006 amounts of $45,000 and $55,000 ($90,000 and $110,000 if married filing a joint return).
