Your Office

Is your laptop strictly for business? Deduction.
What about the iPad you use to take notes on in meetings? Deduction.
The paper you’ve purchased for client reports? You guessed it: deduction.

The everyday products, electronics, and software you use to run your business, is often times tax deductible. While this is important to remember, it’s especially important, as all the purchases you’re making for your office often adds up quickly.

Save your receipts throughout the year.

Business Travel

For the self employed, keeping up to date on the latest conferences and educational summits is way easier said than done. With these high cost seminars comes travel requirements. And you can’t keep shelling out gas money, hotel and food costs all that often.

Luckily for those self employed, training and education expenses may all be tax deductible. Know that insane amount of money you paid for airport parking? That is even tax deductible.

Did you rent a car after you got off the plane? Tax deductible. As long as you used the rental car specifically and exclusively for business, you’re in the clear. Keep those gas receipts.
