Tax Deductible Educational Expense
While a personal accountant or Certified Public Accountant can best advise students regarding tax deductions, it is important to remember that the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 26, Section 1.162-5, Expenses for Education allows for personal income tax deduction of educational expenses including tuition, cost of travel, meals and lodging, etc., so long as they: 1) Maintain or improve skills required by the individual in his employment or other trade or business, or 2) Meet the express requirements of the individual’s employer, or the requirements of applicable law or regulations, imposed as a condition to the retention by the individual of an established employment relationship, status, or rate of compensation.
