Q & A


What business expenses can I deduct?


You can deduct almost every legitimate business expense, there are some limits to the amount that you can deduct. Some expenses are not considered to be deductible for business tax purposes. Those non-deductable expenses include political contributions, capital expenses, and entertainment expenses.


Does tax-exempt status mean I am exempt from all taxes?


No, if an organization has received tax-exempt status from the federal government, it doesn’t make them exempt from state and local taxes, property taxes, payroll taxes or other taxes.
