8. Student Loan Interest: You may be able to deduct interest you pay on a qualified student loan. The deduction is claimed as an adjustment to income so you do not need to itemize your deductions.
As you can see, children can have an impact on your tax profile. If you’re a parent, we’ll go over your situation with you to make sure you’re getting the credits and deductions you’re entitled to.
