Can I claim a HOPE/American Opportunity Credit or a Lifetime Learning Credit for qualified tuition and other related expenses?

There are certain restrictions that don’t allow you to claim a credit for the same qualified expenses used to figure the tax-free portion of a withdrawal from your DreamAhead account.
