What Can Be Deducted?

Business tax deductions are expenses that can be subtracted from your gross revenue to lower the amount of taxable income. Understanding what qualifies as a deduction is essential for maximizing your tax savings. Here’s an overview of some common deductions:

  1. Operating Expenses: This includes everyday costs necessary for running your business, such as rent, utilities, office supplies, and wages.
  2. Business Travel: Expenses related to business travel, including airfare, lodging, meals, and transportation, are generally deductible.
  3. Vehicle Expenses: If you use a vehicle for your business, you can deduct expenses such as mileage, fuel, maintenance, and insurance.
  4. Home Office: If you operate your business from home, you may be eligible to deduct some of your housing expenses, such as rent, mortgage interest, utilities, and insurance.
  5. Health Insurance Premiums: Small business owners who pay for their health insurance may be able to deduct these premiums as a business expense.
  6. Professional Services: Fees paid to attorneys, accountants, consultants, and other professionals are deductible.
  7. Depreciation: You can deduct the cost of tangible assets (such as equipment and machinery) over time through depreciation.

Commonly Overlooked Deductions

While some deductions are well-known, others often go unnoticed. Here are a few commonly overlooked deductions that could save you money:

  1. Startup Costs: Expenses incurred before your business officially begins operations, such as market research and advertising, may be deductible.
  2. Bad Debts: If you’ve made attempts to collect payments from customers or clients but have been unsuccessful, you can deduct these bad debts as a business loss.
  3. Education and Training: Costs associated with improving your skills or staying updated in your industry, such as workshops or online courses, may be deductible.
  4. Charitable Contributions: Donations made by your business to qualified charitable organizations are generally deductible.
