General Discussion

Can I claim being a student through Treehouse on my taxes?

As a fellow student here at Treehouse I was wondering if we could report this as a learning center on our taxes. If so how do we do it and and is there an item number that we could use while preparing our income tax return?

You can only claim being a student if you go to an accredited school. Sites like team tree house are not accredited schools. They are simply learning resources.

See the IRS website for info on taxes:
