    Does anyone know if the monies paid to the midshipman fee account are tax deductible as education expenses?

    I was hoping CPASteve would weigh in, but I don't know how much he is on SAF now that wrestling is over.

    FWIW, our CPA didn't let us deduct them. I think someone in a previous post had said this is an "administrative" fee, not a tuition. Our CPA looked at the receipt and gave a quick - Nope!

    My experience only. Again, FWIW.

    I have not used them for my son as the fees being collected are for haircuts, tayloring, etc. One item that may be a issue now is the computer and software are deductable for year 2009. It was not in 2008 when we paid for it. :thumbdown:

    Right now is tax season and back to doing taxes.
