Hello,I have a question regarding tuition reimbursement. In 2007, my 1098-T shows ~$6k in tuition billed, and that is the only amount on that form. My W-2 has a 12a item L for ~$2000, which is how much I was reimbursed in 2007. Can I take the remaining ~$4k as a deduction? The reason it isn't one for one is that my company could not repay me for my fall classes until 2008. My second question is, for the next few years, my classes exceed the $5250 amount per year, so I am being billed ~$10k a year and getting $5250 for reimbursement. Along the same lines, can I claim the difference? When I graduate, and am still being reimbursed by my company, would I then have to pay taxes when I am being reimbursed $5250 a year but am getting no 1098-T (paying no tuition)?Technically if I claimed the difference in my favor, then never paid taxes on the difference in the IRS' favor...wouldn't that be a double benefit (IRS pub 970? says you cannot receive a double benefit, but that is the only thing I've really seen on this situation...)Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!Thanks,Steve
