For tax breaks for College tuition I went to a trade school does that count

This may qualify as an Education Credit, per the IRS, "An eligible educational institution is any college, university, vocational school, or other postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U.S. Department of Education. It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution."

If your Trade School falls under this IRS eligibility requirement, then the school would have issued you a Form 1098-T, as a result. We would suggest confirming with your school.

If so & once confirmed,  you would need to click Federal Taxes, then click Deductions & Credits,  look for Education, Expenses and scholarships.
