Sorry if this has come up many times before. Son accepted admission at a college, but later got off the waitlist at his #1 choice, where he will be going in the fall. A friend suggested that the forfeited deposit should be tax deductible, since no goods or services were provided. Is this correct? Should I write to the first school and ask for a letter acknowledging our gift? Thanks for any pointers.
