Business Travel Expenses

Here are some business travel expenses you might not know you can write off according to Business Insider. They say you should keep accurate records as well.

Dry Cleaning: Sometimes trips last longer so the IRS says expenses for dry cleaning and laundry are tax-deductible as a business cost.

Calls and other communication: You may already keep track of calls but also keep track of faxes and Internet connection fees if you have them.

Convention travel: Workshops, conferences, and seminars if they have a direct business purpose.

Shipping work material: If you have to send ahead the products you are showing for potential buyers, like a trade show, you can deduct that cost.

Stenographer fees: If you have to hire a stenographer to transcribe legal docs you can write off associated fees.

Computer rental: If you need to rent a computer, you can write off the cost.

Business travel by RV: If traveling by RV can be proven necessary for business, any expenses are tax-decutible.
