Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Even if you are receiving Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits, you can still receive federal student aid including Pell grant.So you are OK.
See herehttp://blog.ed.gov/2012/11/3-things-you-may-not-know-about-financial-aid-for-veterans/Plus - neither Pell grant nor GI Bill benefits are taxable.
So far - there is nothing to worry - the funds awarded for the Pell Grant (which are title IV funds) should NOT be considered when reporting tuition to the VA.
