In Zanotti, which examined the Italian rules on the deductibility of university fees incurred abroad, the ECJ held that national legislation that allows a deduction for the cost of attending a domestic university but not a university in another Member State is in breach of EU law; however, national legislation can limit the deduction to the maximum amount established for the corresponding cost of attending similar courses at a domestic public university.
