  • Tax Day

    I realize April 15th seems like a long way off, but it in not too early
    to start thinking about tax deductions and especially in our line of work:

    1. Even if you toss your uniform into the washer at home, the
    electriicity and water and wear and tear on the washer is tax deductiable

    2. Receieve e-mail at home from your supervisior?

    A. AOL is tax deductiable
    B. Norton Anti-Virus tax deductable
    C. Ink for your computer printer
    D. Paper for your printer.

    3. Black Shoes for work. Shoe polish as well, and even
    black socks, black belt, all tax deductiable.



    4. Have to travel to the branch office after work?
    Mileage is tax deductiable

    5. Called on your cell phone by your boss after work.
    Cingular, Sprint, T-Mobile monthly charges are
    tax deductiable as well as the phone itself.

    6. For those of us who work Contract Security and travel from
    one site to another, mileage from site to site is a tax write off.


    7. Some of us are still in the Stone Age and contacted
    with pagers. The battery for the pagers are tax deductiable.

    8. Belong to
    http://www.ifpo.org/
    Yup tax deductable

    9. Any trade magazine in our business is tax deductiable, as well
    as books from ASIS.

    10 Any course at a local college that may have courses on
    Homeland Security maybe is tax deductiable.

    11. 1st aid courses and EMT courses taught at your local
    Fire Deparment maybe a tax deduction if you paid
    for these courses.


    and to my friend Hotel Security in Canada I am sure you too
    have similar laws, but subsriptions to Playboy Magazine is a no-no
    I am sure your Prime Minister would take a dim view on that.

    I think the moral here is... if you use it for work in some way, than part or all of it is a write off.

      I "borrow" the batteries for my pager from the hotel
      I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.

        Keep in mind the government allocates about 5 grand in "average writeoffs" already. If your writeoffs are greater than the "average," then you can use itemized deductions. However, if you use itemized deductions and its only $3,000 or so... You're actually screwing yourself.

          Pardon my ignorance again but do most states or all states have federal AND state income taxes? Quebec has it's own. Other provinces have the federal government collect it for them. We have the joy of paying 2 income taxes. Quebec, the most taxed jurisdiction in North America (We do get medicare, drug insurance, no fault car insurance but...)

            Some states do not have income taxes. Florida being one of them. Michigan does. Also I know in some cities they have an income tax. Some do it differently but Grand Rapids in Michigan if you live and work in the City you pay the full amount, if you just work in the city adn don't live in the city you pay a partial or something like that beeen a couple years.

              I have relatives in Houston. No income tax, but hefty sales and city tax.
              When my daughter was born in 1990 it was about the same time my
              Grandfarther passed away. We had a tax from the hospital where my daughter
              was born, and a death tax for my Grandfarther

              Boys and Girls your taxed from the nano second your on this earth, and
              probably after you leave planet earth, and see St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

              Oops I forgot most of us are going to the other place where we shovel # 9 coal for Lucifer. That would be the Gallery of Demons
