Question about education and other expenses


J

James Reichner

I have a general question about filing taxes. I currently
work for a company in their IT department and I personally
incur expenses that are not reimbursed. For example my
company uses Nextel phones and I have a Nextel phone that is
used for business/personal. The company does not reimburse
me for the calls that they make to me. Can this be written
off in my taxes? If so, is there a limit?

I also have other non-reimbursed business expenses like ISP
fees for example. Can this also be written off? If so, is
there a limit?

Now...there is one other thing that I have a question about.
Of course in IT, certifications are important and expensive.
I have worked for many companies that will pay for your
education but they are talking about giving you money toward
your college degree. Can the expense for certifications be
written off on your taxes? Again, I am not sure if this is
possible.

Any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thanks in
advance for your time and input!

Education that addresses keeping or improving your current
position etc--but NOT a new position is generally
deductible--subject to 2% income offset on itemized
deduction form.
