8 Miscellaneous Business Operating Expenses You Can Deduct for tax purposes

As a small business owner, it’s important to understand ways you can take advantage of tax breaks and deductions to reduce your tax liability.



You’ll want to keep good records and don’t be afraid to ask for help from experts when you don’t know how to file your taxes. When you think of business expenses, the most common ones are rent, internet, utilities, and insurance, but there are countless examples of miscellaneous expenses that can be written off as well.

To define operating expenses, consider all costs and fees associated with running and managing a business. Such costs incurred for the running of a company are tax-deductible.

As part of our commitment to provide valuable resources that help our community of solo practitioners run their business, we would like to share a list of the top business operating expenses that are eligible for deductions:

  1. Office supplies, rent, and utilities
  2. Insurance
  3. Advertising
  4. Business tax, fees, licensing
  5. Professional service, accounting, and legal fees
  6. Salaries
  7. Motor vehicle costs

In the following article by Quickbooks, you will find a more detailed explanation of each expense and how they can be eligible for tax deductions.
