It is that time of the year again, just a few more days until Tax Day in America. That reminds me, I need to call my accountant and see the status of my returns...
In any event, this is typically when AdSense publishers try to come up with a list of what they can deduct from their AdSense earnings. Keep in mind, I am not an accountant, so any advice here must be run by someone who is a professional in this area.
A WebmasterWorld thread has a list of items you may be able to deduct. I have complied some of the items into this bulleted list below:
- Internet Connections
- Hosting Fees
- Tax preparation fees
- Bank fees
- Computer Costs
- Forum Membership Fees (i.e. WebmasterWorld)
- Conference Fees (hotel, food, travel and event - careful with this)
- Lunches & Dinners for Business
- Office Furniture & Supplies
- Ads & Site Promos
- Health Insurance
You can find our coverage of this from two years ago at Tax Deductions For Google AdSense: It's Tax Season.
