Self-employed expenses

Self-employed workers can write off half of what they pay in social security and Medicare taxes (the employer portion).

Post-college education expenses

The Lifetime Learning Credit allows taxpayers to deduct up to $2,000 a year, based on 20% off of the first $10,000 spent on education after high school, like a vocational or community-college class. 

Medical expenses

According to Investopedia, you can write off several healthcare and medical expenses if they’re out-of-pocket and cost more than 7.5% of your adjusted gross income — however, this limit will increase to 10% for 2019 returns.
