I did my taxes back in February, but for those of you who owe this year or others who prefer to wait until the deadline it is fast approaching.
This article from the USA Today talks about the ins and outs of deducting travel expenses. This is the first year I’ve itemized, but I didn’t bother deducting any business expenses because my company pays for all relevant expenses. For many others home internet and cell phone probably are justified business expenses. I’m sure I could justify a lot under the “travel blogger” title, but I don’t feel that I blog enough to warrant writing off trips to Europe. Your situation, CPA, and mileage may vary.
