Any accountants or tax preparers out there? Assuming I run my home stringing business like a legitimate business (LLC filing with Sec. of State, separate bank account for the business, etc., etc.), can I legally deduct expenses associated with being a member of my tennis club? Like initiation fee, annual dues, and court time fees? Here is my logic... 1. I often playtest many new strings at the club. A legitimate and very necessary activity in running a stringing business. 2. Through personal networking and word-of-mouth, the club is a source of new customers for me. Therefore, it is kind of like an advertising expense. Thoughts on deducting these club related expenses? Thanks.
