My daddy used to say that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. While I can’t tell you how to cheat death, I can give you a leg up on your tax return. If you follow my list of 7 little known tax return deductions, Uncle Sam is still going to stick it to you, but he just might spit in his hand first:
1. Surprising Tax Return Deductions: Webcam.
Whether you need to record a vlog for your company website or Skype with an important customer, you’re going to need a Webcam. A nice HD 1080p set-up isn’t cheap but as long as you only use it for work you can write it off.
2. Coconut Oil.
If you’re anything like me, you can’t get your whole hand inside someone without slathering it in lube first. For those times when your client wants the fist, the whole fist, and nothing but the fist, you need coconut oil. It’s 100% natural and 100% tax deductible!
3. Rubber Sheets.
Throughout the course of an average work day there’s no telling what sort of bodily fluids will get spilled on your bed. If you don’t fancy sleeping in a puddle of ‘organic matter’ then a rubber or plastic mattress guard is a business essential.
