Each year you will need to prepare the test. You may qualify in one year and not in another depending on your circumstance. However, any year for which you qualify will produce tax savings for you. Be careful to document your travel and dates as you go along. Keep a log and any travel receipts for travel expenses. They will help you to determine if you qualify and will support your position if you are ever questioned.
