Ask A CPA - Educational Tax Benefits

Are The Costs Of My Secondary Teacher College Courses Deductible?

Yes since this would not be considered a new job or meeting the minimum requirements of the current job. The following teaching position changes qualify as deductible job changes: elementary to secondary teacher; teacher in one subject changing to another subject; classroom teacher to guidance counselor; or classroom teacher to school administrator, such as a principal.
