Hi, I can help with this

Exactly, see this summary from the court:
In summary, the MBA/HCM may have improved petitioner's preexisting skill set, but objectively, she was already performing the tasks and activities of her trade or business before commencing the MBA. For all of the above reasons, we find that petitioner's MBA/HCM did not qualify her for a new trade or business, and we hold, therefore that petitioner may deduct her education expenses for 2005.

H&R Block front lines folks don't typicall have a clue
I just had to have a client go back and refigure basis because they tried to use a current figue for stock that had been bought in an employee discount program for over 20 years
We had to educate them on the llot approach
That's the citation, have them take it to their manager
great, thanks so much!
