Can I deduct the education expenses which I paid for my brother?


Question:
 
I am going to sponsor my brother for his MBA. Can I claim for tax deductions?
 
Answer:
 
You can only claim a deduction for educations costs of yourself, not for your brother. The payment is not deductible.
 
Be aware: if your brother will not pay you back, the sponsorship is treated as a gift which is liable for gift duties.
