expenses are not necessarily allowed for each benefit. 2012 federal tax forms For example, the cost of room and board is a qualified education expense for the qualified tuition program, but not for the education savings bond program. 2012 federal tax forms   Many of the terms used in the publication are defined in the glossary near the end of the publication. 2012 federal tax forms 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
