GIC is incorporated as a nonprofit educational association under the laws of the State of Ohio. Contributions to GIC are tax-deductible. Treasury Regulation 1.162-5 permits an income tax deduction for educational expenses, including registration fees, travel, meals, and lodging that have been undertaken to:
- Maintain or improve skills required in one's employment or other trade or business.
- Meet express requirements of an employer, or a law imposed as a condition of or for retention of employment, job status, or rate of compensation.
- Those wishing to deduct these types of expenses should confer with their tax consultant about their potential qualification for these deductions.
