EMT Course

Good afternoon I have a question regarding paying for my emt class. I made X amount and paid out of pocket for my EMT course and it took about 20% of my income that I made that year. Am I eligible to get an benefits from it.

EMT Course

Probably not as a deduction if it ;

  • Is needed to meet the minimum educational requirements of your present trade or business or
  • Is part of a program of study that will qualify you for a new trade or business.

You probably will get one of the education credits. See this from the IRS   https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p970.pdf
