I am sorry to post an out of context question here.

But since we all are spending so much money on certification.. $300 for each exam. Plus books, plus mock exams.

Do you know if all this qualifies as deductible for a person who itemizes the deductions in USA?

Can you simplify what you said in the above line?

Sure...

I own a house. So, I do an itemized deductions when I file my taxes.

My question is regarding the cost of certifications (which will be more than $1000 bucks this year. Since I am planning for a total of 3 exams). Is this $1000 tax deductible? Can I add it to any of the deduction buckets?

I know I should be consulting a CPA here. But I just want to know if someone has any idea?

Thanks so much
