Does anyone know what type of investment courses and/ or investment subscriptions(wall street journal, stock newsletter, etc.) can be deducted on one's individual tax return? Are there any restrictions, such as meeting a percentage of adjusted gross income? Thanks

These type of expenses are deductible subject to a limitation - 2% of your AGI.

Certain other expenses are not deductible - for instance - the cost of attending an annual meeting of the shareholders of a company in which you own stock is specifically excluded as an eligible deduction.
