Grad School Tax Questions.
April 14, 2014 6:24 AM Subscribe
I'm entering a PhD program with full tuition covered and a stipend.
I own a home with my fiancee, but my home is 2 hours away from my school. So for the first year, I'm going to rent an on-campus apartment. And I have some tax questions.
Can I deduct my apartment rent?
After the first year, when I'm doing my work and living in my house, can I deduct any part of my mortgage payments as a 'home office'? I'll have a designated area for writing/studying/grading/research etc.
If I buy a laptop, can I deduct that from my taxes?
