Hello fellow fools; here's hoping everyone had a happy holiday.

Now on to my question. I'm not really new to investing, I've been investing in mutual funds for many years; however I've just recently started investing in indivdual companies. I've been reading and learning all I can and there are some investment newsletters I'm interested in signing up for. My question is, are the fees/subscriptions to these newletters deductable on my income taxes. I've heard conflicting reports. Also, are only "paper" style reports and newsletters deductable? Can I deduct subscription fees for say..Morningstar's Website, Motley Fool, or any other investment related website..

You know its' sad, being and Accountant by trade, you'd think I'd know this, or at the least, be un-lazy enough to look it up. :)

Thanks for your help..
