For clients that itemize deductions on IRS Form 1040 – Schedule A, then legal expenses may be used as a deduction on year-end 2017 tax return. Consult your tax professional to see if any of your accounting and legal expenses can qualify you for a 90% tax deduction from the service receipt performed. Make sure to keep records of all receipts for your tax professional.
Please note that 90% percent of the invoice is deductible as a miscellaneous expense on Schedule A of your individual tax return (IRS Form 1040 & Hawaii State Form N-11) for Accounting and Legal Expenses, for Trust, Lease, Income Tax and Estate Planning.
Please consult with your tax professional
