Subject:  Is Tuition deductible? Date:  12/9/1999  3:09 PM
Author:  schreige Number:  22700 of 127613

I attended college in 1999 part-time while I was a full time employee for a company I've worked for for 3 years. The courses led up to receiving a B.S. in computer science. Is the tuition for this deductible as a misc. item on my Itemized decution form?
I have a vague understanding of what qualifies and I believe I can say the education improved my current job skills. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance. Also can you deduct money spent on suits to go on job interviews? It's a stretch but I'm just curious.
