same term, such as qualified education expenses, is used to label a basic component of many of the education benefits, the same expenses are not necessarily allowed for each benefit. 2012 1040 ez tax

terms used in the publication are defined in the glossary near the end of the publication. 2012 1040 ez tax form The glossary is not intended to be a substitute for reading the chapter on a particular education benefit, but it will give you an overview of how certain terms are used in discussing the different benefits. 2012 1040 ez tax form Comments and suggestions. 2012 1040 ez tax form   We
