  1. Hello guys, I have benefited greatly by this community over the years. Al by being just a passive reader answering my doubts just be reading through the forum. To that, I thank you all. But reading my tax situation I cannot seem to get my head around.         - Marital status: Single          - Previous education: BSc in Visual Communication (Not in Germany)         - Period of education (Diploma in Germany): March 2014 - March 2016         - Employed from: April 2016 - present (3years).          - No children         - Salary: 32400          - I paid 16000 Euros in Tuition for the two years I studied          - Ever since I started working, I pay around 600 euros toward my education loan (Approx: Tuition 16000; Living expense 15300 euros( which includes travel and living for 9 months internship in three cities Stockholm, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam)          - Haven't files taxes from 2014 - 2018   I am aware as of now the tax returns are not granted for first degrees. But will a Diploma in Germany count as a second degree? I have read articles which suggest that in anywise filing a tax return is beneficiary in case the supreme court rules out the unfair bias between bachelors and masters. Which makes me wonder about the status of a diploma degree. Has anyone has experience claiming tax returns on a diploma course, if that is even possible. Quoting wundertax “Can all students use a tax loss carry over? All students completing a second degree (master or bachelor with previous vocational training) can claim their educational and occupational expense as work-related tax deductions. For students completing their first degree, the current finance authority only acknowledge the tuition fees as extraordinary expenses, a loss carry over is therefore not possible (see notes below).“ again, this does not mention anything about a diploma. Thank you for reading through, any input is appreciated
