A valuable tax credit called the "American Opportunity Credit" (AOC) could knock up to $2,500 off the cost of each of the first 4 years of college.

How the heck am I going to pay for all this?

Tuition, fees, books, and required tools or supplies are all qualified expenses for purposes of these tax breaks.

Form 1098-E shows student loan interest paid during the year and is often deductible from income as an adjustment.
