Education Deductions

Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Q: I own a landscape business and want to get certified as a green grower.
The certification requires me to take classes, which cost money. And I

must pay a certification fee. Can I deduct those costs as business expenses?

A: Yes, all of those costs are legitimate tax deductions for your business.

In fact, if you take additional classes as part of your continuing education in the landscape industry, you can also deduct those costs. And if you’re required to pay an annual fee to maintain your green certification, that cost is also deductible.
