This fact sheet contains information for taxpayers who home school their children and have questions about which home school education expenses qualify for the K-12 Education Subtraction and Credit.

For information on eligibility and documentation requirements, general qualifying educational expenses, and limitations of the education subtraction and credit, see Income Tax Fact Sheet 8, K-12 Education Subtraction and Credit.

In general, expenses that qualify for either the subtraction or the credit include:

  • Purchases of required materials and miscellaneous fees for use during the normal school day
  • Instructor fees and tuition for enrichment classes or instruction taken outside the normal school day or school year, provided the instructor is not the child’s sibling, parent, or grandparent
  • Computer hardware and educational software

Qualifying expenses that apply only for the subtraction include instructor fees and tuition for classes taken during the regular school day.
