Taxes

Can I deduct meals?

You Betchya! Although you can't just claim all meals!!


To claim Meals as a business expense there must be some type of business discussion before, during or directly after consuming your delicious meals!! To add to that, the meal must be directly related to the conduct of your business!


So, what qualifies as a meal/entertainment tax deduction you ask?  This can include anything from taking an employee out to lunch or dinners with clients while traveling out of town.


Also, 50% of business related meals are actually deductible, so be sure to keep those receipts!!
