I did not receive a 1098T but I had to take a couple of courses for my NJ teaching certificate in order to remain as a teacher. Is this considered educational exp?

Do I report this cost under education expense without 1098T or is this cost under employee expense - teacher expense of only 250? It cost me $2000 for the course certificate.

Wow, even though the nj board of ed required me to get it to keep my teaching position. If i didnt get it they would have released me. Was this because of Trumps Tax changes?

Nearly all W-2 employee expenses are not deductible for 2018 returns. Your $250 educator deduction remains.
