You are responsible for separating your business expenses from your personal expenses. When you work with an accountant and tax preparer, you typically have to sign a document stating that you are responsible for the claims on your tax filing, even if they prepared your filing for you.
We don’t provide direct tax advice, but generally speaking, expenses you incur directly related to your self-employed job or business are tax-deductible.
We created a free tax deduction resource for entrepreneurs which you can access here. This resource has easy-to-understand explanations of popular, valuable deductions most business owners can take to reduce their tax liability.
