What is deductible can change in any given year. The IRS is constantly
revising and updating the tax codes. 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

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

copies of any notices you receive with your other tax records. For more on
