Allowable Expense??

I know when I worked from home in the past for a consulting company, I was allowed to claim home cleaning services as a business expense. Does anyone know if this is still allowable and if it applies to PC businesses?

And, no, I'm not joking!!! :)

I would think not, it's only tax deductable if it is solely for the business, such as logo shirts...only for the biz. House cleaning is not really for the business, it's for you.

That's what I thought too when I was doing consulting work from home but our accountant said it was allowable. I guess I will have to check on it with him.

Thanks!!!

Unless you have a majority of the shows at your house - probably like more than 75%. I would call a tax prep place and see what they think.

The good news is that the extra Pampered Chef income has allowed me to treat us to this luxury which is great since I am now so busy with PC stuff!! So whether it's deductible or not, I'm still gonna do it!! (have it done that is - not claim it as a deduction) heheheheh :p

Thank you, that is so nice of you to say...

I am the type of person that if I don't think it's worth it then I wouldn't even mess with it...but now, I might actually go ahead and check with a CPA and find out since I will need a cleaning person when I go back to work next week. I don't know how I am going to keep up with cleaning our house (since DH doesn't seem to know how).

I don't know how to feel about going back to work, on one hand I am very excited about making oddles of money and gettig career advancement very quickly but on the other hand I am very sad that I won't get to go to the pool and play to the park with my kiddies. But, with that being said my kids need the structure from daycare that I can't seem to provide, I have found out that I am not a career SAHM. I loved being able to stay home when they were little but now that they are becoming more independent and don't need me as much, I have gotten quite bored. Okay, sorry for the novel...but thanks Gillian for making me feel wanted...I will be checking here before I leave the house, at lunch and I am sure much to my DH's dismay first thing when I get home!

Hubby says that I should definately use this new job as a huge recruiting tool and that I will do...directorship here I come, finally!!
