Deduction of first time travel expense of a spouse
If my spouse came to US first time (on H4 visa), can I claim her travel expenses (flight, etc.) during my tax return? My tax consultant says "you cannot claim that, its personal expenses" and one of my friend's tax consultant asked him all questions about his spouse's flight expense, taxi expense, etc. and said "as it is first time travel, you can claim these expenses".
Can someone please tell me whether I can claim this travel expenses during my tax filing?
