I started a Florida llc cleaning business. I clean most houses for profit, but I clean cancer patients houses for free. Can I deduct the cleaning of cancer patients houses?=======>
Just simply deduct the cleaning of cancer patients houses ?? No;however, you, as a contractor, may claim your biz related expenses on SCh C/C-EZ; Most professionals in the cleaning industry are classified as self-employed. Unlike traditional workers, self-employed professionals don?t have taxes withheld from their paychecks. As such, the IRS allows you who are self-employed to claim deductions to cover your business expenses and lower your tax burden.For example, you on your return thru SCh C/C-EZ, can claim Transportation Expense, either by The Standard Mileage Rate Or actual expense, Parking and Tolls, advertising, biz insurance or etc.
I do this all on my own and not through a non profit organization. I started the business in August of this year and did not have a paying client in 2017 but did clean a cancer patient's house twice.=========>If you need free taxation related help plz visit Volunteer Income Tax Assistance ?
