Is the Convention Tax Deductible?

Did you know that U.S. Treasury regulations permit an income tax deduction for educational expense when the education is undertaken to maintain or improve one's employment or other trade or business?

Also, if you're a duly appointed, voting delegate representing your club at the convention, attend all the meetings as the delegate and report back to your club, many of the out-of-pocket expenses are deductible as charitable contributions if your club does not reimburse you and there is "no significant element of personal pleasure or recreation."

Toastmasters International is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a tax-exempt, nonprofit educational organization. (Contributions may be deducted on U.S. Tax returns.)
