Is the clothes expenses related to school uniforms?
Unless uniforms is a specific requirement by an eligible elementary or secondary school in connection with attendance or enrollment at the school, school clothing is not tax dedutible.

Deductible educational expenses include amounts spent for tuition, books, supplies, laboratory fees, and similar items. They also include the cost of correspondence courses, as well as formal training and research you do as part of an educational program. Transportation and travel expenses to attend qualified educational activities may also be deductible.
