Witchcraft training gets Dutch tax break


AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch tax authorities have allowed a woman to deduct the 2,210 euros (1,444 pounds) it cost her to take a one-year course in witchcraft, an inland revenue official said on Wednesday. The 39-year actress and artist learnt how to use crystal balls and prepare herbs, and also spells and other witchcraft skills at the course held in the country’s northwest.
