Got back into it to help out local league, and spent $45 to take soccer ref class and get licensed. It did provide income above that amount (but most games I did for free).

Do any other refs claim that $45 as an education tax credit instead of a job expense or charity deduction?

Although it is sort of a license fee, one does have to take the class and future refresher classes to get the license.


P.S...to new retirees thinking of doing this, make sure you're up for sprinting. My Achilles tendon still hasn't forgiven me.
