    Of course. If you have to pay taxes on the money you earn it is only fair to deduct the costs of earning that money.
    depreciation on the computer, cost of second phone line or DSL service, ISP, hosting, any long distant calls about your service and so forth, office space and furnishings if relevant - all deductable. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Yep!

    Advertising (PPC etc.), hosting, non-game software, Wordtracker, printer paper, software instruction books, etc. all get taken off.

    I think to deduct health insurance you have to have a business structure set-up and pay for the health insurance through the business. I think.

    That's correct Hershey.
    I incorporated my home based web businesses and found 10 other guys/gals that work at home. We formed a insurance group and purchase health and dental with the same buying power as the big guys.

    Anyways since each of our incorporations pays our own salary and benifits the incorporation is allowed the deduction.
