deductibility of TMF seminars is not in agreement with IRS Publication 550 which says...........

But the same 550 publication says, "Investment counsel and advice. You can deduct fees you pay for counsel and advice about investments that produce taxable income. This includes amounts you pay for investment advisory services"

E-mail is not a seminar as I'm not actually attending anything. It's much like reading a book which for financial purposes is deductable.

So I guess it's how you feel you can word it if audited.

I'd say TMF seminars are an investment advisory services which clearly are deductable.
