I am divorced, and my ex-spouse and I both pay part of the tuition for our children's school. How much K-12 Education Expense Credit are we allowed to claim on our individual income tax returns?

If you are the parents or legal guardians of a qualified student and you are filing separate Illinois returns, you may each claim an education expense credit. However, you may not both claim a credit for the same expenses, and the total amount of credit claimed between both parents or guardians may not exceed $500.
