My child went on a field trip that was required by the school. I had to pay $25.00 for the trip. The cost included the transportation, lunch, and the admission fee. Is this a qualified education expense?

If the $25 is a lump sum charge paid to the school, it would qualify as a lab fee. If the charge for lunch is separate, it does not qualify. Only amounts paid to the school are eligible for the credit.
