Answers To Frequently Asked Questions

Business expenses are deductible. They can lower your taxable income and reduce the amount of tax you owe.

Understanding the difference between business and personal expenses is crucial for small business owners. The IRS doesn’t have a comprehensive list of all allowable business deductions. Instead, it offers the general rule that any expense that is ordinary and necessary for running your business is deductible. If not, then it’s a personal expense.

Some of the most common business expenses include:

  • Salaries and employee benefits
  • Office expenses and supplies
  • Advertising
  • Rent or mortgage
  • Business insurance
  • Taxes
  • Depreciation
  • Utilities
  • Loan interest payments
  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Professional services (legal, accounting, etc.)
  • Professional subscriptions
  • When traveling for work, you can deduct:

  • Actual expenses or the standard mileage rate
  • Business-related tolls and parking fees
  • Business-use portion of the expenses of renting a car
  • Lodging
  • Non-entertainment-related meals
  • Dry cleaning
  • Laundry
  • If you own a business or are self-employed, you can deduct car expenses on your tax returns if you use the vehicle for business.

    When a vehicle is used for business and personal needs, you’re required to track and split the expenses. The portion of mileage used for your business is what can be deducted from your tax returns.
