Can you deduct the fees of your PhD course from your taxes?
If, as a grad student, you are receiving a university stipend, then as I understand it, that is not taxable in HK. However, assume you have a separate income from working part-time which is taxable. Now, the stipend itself doesn't cover the university fees, so you still have to pay them yourself (normally out of the stipend, but arguably it could be from your work salary). So my question is, can you deduct the fees as "self-education expenses" on the HK tax form?
(I also assume a PhD considered to be a "job-related qualification", which some might find amusing...)
