[[ Can a person claim the HOPE SCHOLARSHIP if the member was using their
GI BILL from the militarty, or is that considered a non-taxable education

If you otherwise qualify for the credit, and YOU PAY monies out of your pocket for any qualified expenses, then you may receive the credit for those funds that you paid.

But any education expenses paid by the GI Bill, for which you are not liable for repayment is treated as a scholarship, and is not subject to the credit. Sorry.
