My employer pays my college tuition for a degree related to my job. I understand that I should be able to take some kind of Lifetime Learning credit for the tuition, even if it paid for by my employer. When I did my taxes, however, I came up not qualifying because I had $103 too high an income in 2000. Most of the extra income was from the forced sale of some stocks that I didn't know about (broker account handled it all... I'm in the process of ditching the broker now!). I am still not sure what caused the sale of the stocks. Itemizing won't help me, but I was wondering if there are any things that I can do retroactively (like sale of a stock at a loss) or something to reduce my income by a few hundred dollars?
