Because Beacon’s programs serve students with diagnosed learning differences, our tuition and fees may qualify as medical tax deduction.
Families are advised to contact their accountant tax advisor to determine their eligibility and tax impact. IRS publications 907 and 502 in particular offer information about medical and dental expenses. In addition to tuition and fees, other costs such as books, notebook computers and other education-related expenses may also be tax deductible.
