You mentioned that the education tax credit is for four years--I am in my final semester of a five year program. Is that going to disqualify me from the credit?
Also, is that $2,500 limit only for tuition? I had over $4,000 in school-related, non-tuition expenses last year and it would be awesome if I could see some of that come back to me as well.Ben –Feb 2, 2011 09:48:58 AM

Perhaps someone could tell me why a new way of doing real estate would not work. I have yet to hear anybody suggest a fix. All people do is lament about how bad things are.
