Am I double-dipping on tuition expenses? (California)
« on: February 01, 2019, 04:41:57 PM »
As a graduate student, I qualify for the federal Lifelong Learner's Credit for 20% of my tuition costs for the year. Anyone know if I can list that same tuition as an employee business expense on my California filing? I am reasonably certain my tuition qualifies as a business expense, just not whether I am allowed apply it twice - once to my federal and once to my state taxes.
