Not extended for 2017:
A few provisions expired at the end of 2016 and were not extended for 2017. They include:
Tuition and Fees Deduction – the deduction that was previously on line 34 is no longer available. A portion of qualified education expenses are still allowed as a credit through the American Opportunity Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit.
Cancellation of Debt Home Mortgage Exclusion – originally for acquisition indebtedness of up to $2,000,000, cancellation of debt income was excluded from gross income. Unless it is excluded for another reason (such as bankruptcy or insolvency), cancellation of debt related to foreclosures on a home is included in income.
