Are school tuitions a deductible expense when it comes to personal income tax? I have been paying monthly tuition for my wife's studies (she is a full time student) and maybe these costs could generate a tax benefit?
All my taxes are handled by my employer so basically I do nothing when it comes to this topic. But I was told that in certain cases, some people do get a "tax refund" when they actually submit a demand (not sure how this is called).
I would call on a tax adviser to help me with the official procedure but before going ahead, I would like to know if there is any chance that these school expenses would generate a return.
We have a small team of international people at the office and we have been trying to find a tax advisor/consultant who could provide us with a general idea of how the German tax system works, what are the good things to do - and not do (in terms of smart tax planning of course!), etc. Maybe some of our team members could be interested by some more personal consulting later on.
Anyone here could recommend a place or person to go to?
