Tax season got you down? Write off your ACM certification fees!

from ACMA

If you want to write off your certification fees and classes as a business expense, they have to meet one of two standards:
  1. Education that maintains or improves your job performance or serves the purpose of your employer and is required by the employer or by law to keep your salary, status or job, and
  2. the education is not part of a program that will qualify you for a new trade or business.
You can write off the cost of course materials, course fees and take a per-mile write-off for driving to test.

If you're self-employed and certification counts as a business expense, you take it on Schedule C. If you're an employee, you can only claim the cost as an itemized deduction on Schedule A. Business expenses count as a "miscellaneous 2 percent deduction" — add up all deductions in this category, subtract 2 percent of your adjusted gross income and claim what's left.

To learn more, visit the IRS website.

The Health Care Standard
According to the 2013 National Hospital Case Management Survey, nearly half (47 percent) of case management departments prefer the ACM certification - the preferences of the remaining 53 percent of departments are divided among 4 certifications, with the ACM leading the next most preferred certification by more than 20 percent.
