......... I did my part as a citizen. I can then claim that purchase as business expense. Do what's logical and support your own local economy.........
Don't get the wrong tone from my response, no malice intended. Many of us cannot claim a purchase as a business expense. It makes a difference. I have one local camera shop which I have occasionally shopped at. I cannot justify the cost (to me) of big ticket items, I hope he can stay in business but I have my own bills to pay. If I could expense it I would gladly bring him the business......as local pros do.
