Full Answer

If any portion of the tuition is for before-school or after-school care of a child who is under age 13 or is permanently disabled, that amount could qualify for the Child Care Credit. IRS Publication 503 states that education, no matter the child's age, is not eligible for this credit but that care while the parent is working is eligible.
