Where do I enter certification exam and study material expenses on schedule C?

The certification and education material is to maintain or improve skill and not to qualify for a new line of work?

Where do I enter certification exam and study material expenses on schedule C?

Since these education expenses are not related to a category lists under the "Other Common Business Expenses", then report these business education expenses under "Other Miscellaneous Expenses."

To enter these education fees into TurboTax Online (for TurboTax Online sign-in, click Here) or Desktop, please follow these steps:

  1. Once you are in your tax return, click on the “Business"” tab
  2. Next click on “I’ll choose what I work on” (jump to full list)
  3. Scroll down the screen until to come to the section “Business Income and Expense”
  4. Choose “Profit or Loss from Business ” and select start/revisit/update.
  5. If your business is already listed, choose to "edit"
  6.  You will eventually get to a screen titled "Your () Business"
  7. Scroll down to Business Expenses and select "Other Common Business Expenses".

  1. Select "Other Miscellaneous Expenses" and enter here (You can call them "Training and education fees")

Please refer to this IRS link for more information about Business Expenses
