BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Department of Revenue will host a series of meetings across the state to provide information and answer questions about the series of tax deductions known as the Louisiana School Tuition & Expense Tax Deduction.
The Louisiana School Tuition & Expense Tax Deduction applies to education expenses required by schools that were paid during 2009. Eligible expenses include private and parochial school tuition, uniforms, home-schooling supplies, and education supplies required by the school. To claim the deduction, it is not necessary to be the student's parent, but you must be able to claim the student as a dependent on your Louisiana Resident Individual Income Tax Return.
The meetings will take place on Tuesday, February 9, at 6:00 p.m. at the following locations:
Lafayette Public Library, South Branch
6101 Johnston Street, Lafayette
Lake Charles Area
Capital One Tower, 12th Floor
1 Lakeshore Drive, Lake Charles
