25 American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) How did they get this?

26 INTENT OF THE AMERICAN OPPORTUNITY TAX CREDIT “That means reducing financial aid for 8 million students and leaving our community colleges without the resources they need to prepare our students for the jobs of the future.” The Amelias, Maynards, Mahans…..How about the Students?

27 The Students  Joe and Jane are 28 years old  They are married and live in Genesee County  They have a 3-year old daughter, Mary

28 More about Joe and Jane  Joe went into construction right out of high school but unfortunately has been laid off more than employed for the past 4 years  Jane is a paralegal, attending MCC at nights working on transfer program

29 Joe and Jane in 2011  This was an especially rough year for the Students  Joe was laid off most of the year and and had to collect nearly $11,000 in unemployment benefits $11K = almost 1/3 of their Household Income

30 Financial Aid  Jane applied for a Pell Grant at MCC  Unfortunately she was ineligible due in part to the fact that the EFC Formula considered their family earnings and Adjusted Gross Income of $39,787 too high for a family of 3  Fortunately, MCC offered a payment plan that helped tremendously Pell Grant

31 Tax Time March 2012  In March, 2102, the Students filed their tax return  Due to their income level and a new Higher Education Tax credit, the Students were delighted to receive a refund of $2,178 for their tuition Net Tuition Cost for Full Time for 1 Year at MCC = $535 Comparable to Tuition and Fees in or $21/contact hour

32 More in 2012  Joe and Jane were advised by their CPA  That Jane should reduce her federal withholdings to get more money throughout the year instead of waiting until tax time  The Students were worried since Joe was back to work, their income would be too high.  Their CPA informed them that the income limits were $160,000 MFJ and $80,000 Single Reduce withholdings CPA

33 EXPANDED BENEFIT OF A REFUNDABLE CREDIT  Tax Year 2011  Students Total Tax Liability equaled $1,658  They had Paid in (withheld from wages) $2,699  Refund without any credits would be $1,041  But Wait……  They were refunded with the AOTC $3,219  Only the Hope Credit?……  The refund would have been $2,348  Or a “Federal Financial Aid Award” of $871

34 More in 2012  Tax Year 2012  CPA calculated that tuition/fee amounts = $2,957 for 24 contact hours  Higher Education Refund (from improved tax credit) = $2,239  Net tuition/fee for full-time = $718 or  $29/contact hour or rates
