    I don't think anything hs-related is deductible in TX either. Oh, how I wish, lol.

    It is not deductible in Idaho, either. However, here if you do a dba (doing business as) your hs name, you can deduct, but you have to be careful with it.
    I can give you the answer, but I can't understand it for you.

    Texas does not have a state income tax, but it is not deductible on the federal income tax.
    Memberships to zoos and museums ARE though. Not as educational expenses, but as charitable contributions.

    Up to a certain limit is deductible in IL and actually they increased the limit recently. You need to check with your states tax agency or another reliable source on this. My local school district actually sent somebody to my house to tell me to keep my receipts so I can deduct them.
