1. Never assume something can’t be deducted as a business expense.
Bodybuilders have written off baby oil, a junkyard owner deducted the cost of cat food for the felines she counted on to keep rats away, and an exotic dancer won a case against the IRS that allowed her to write off her breast implants.
2. Just because I’m a CPA doesn’t necessarily mean I know taxes.
about my background, what kind of practice I have, and if I’m familiar with your state’s tax laws.
