Frequently Asked Questions
Before my child can begin school, the school requires that I provide her immunization records, including the dates when she received required immunizations and booster shots. Are doctor's visits and immunization shots eligible expenses to include for the school expense deduction?
Although schools may require a copy of immunization records to comply with state health requirements, the statutes that govern the tax deduction limits eligible expenses to: school uniforms, tuition, fees, textbooks, curricula, instructional materials, and educational supplies. Doctor’s visits, immunization shots, physical examinations required before participation in sports, and the like, do not fall into any of the three categories allowed for eligible expenses.
