That is just one of many reasons why retaining the services of an outside accounting for both regular accounting/payroll and taxes is a good idea. Your accountant will be up-to-date on what can and can't be written off, and can help you maximize the potential benefit of your purchases and expenses when you're filing your taxes. Generally, purchases and expenses deemed necessary can be treated as tax deductible.

Don't Panic. Each notice has specific instructions about what you need to do. There are many reasons why the IRS may send a letter or notice. It typically is about a specific issue on your federal tax return or tax account. A notice may tell you about changes to your account or ask you for more information. It could also tell you that you must make a payment. Keep copies of any notices you receive with your other tax records. For more on this topic visit IRS.gov. Click on the link "Responding to a Notice" at the bottom left of the home page. Also, see Publication 594, The IRS Collection Process. You can get it on IRS.gov or by calling 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
