Frequently Asked Questions
Can all school related fees paid for my child be included as part of the school expense deduction?
Not all school related fees qualify as an eligible expense as part of the tax deduction. Fees related to extracurricular activities should not be included as part of the tax deduction. This would include, but not limited to, fees for meal plans, field trips, athletics, band uniforms, band recitals, academic clubs, and school trips, such as senior trips or trips to reward students who excel in certain disciplines. Registration fees, book fees, and fees that are incurred as required by certain classes, such as chemistry, home economics, and computer labs are eligible expenses.
