Dolans: 11 Little-Known Tax Deductions



Times are tough, money is tight and the holiday season is upon us once again. Believe it or not, it’s time to once again begin thinking about everyone’s other favorite time of the year — tax season. Now we know tax time is far from your favorite time of the year, but with the Dolan’s “11 Little-Known Tax Deductions,” you may be able to deduct far more than you ever thought, making tax-return time a kind of “second Christmas:”

Pleasure Trips: “You don’t have to spend your entire trip working, but if you can document that you actually made some business contacts or did a little research relevant to your business while you were away, you can enjoy some tax bennies from the trip.”

Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI): If you didn’t put a 20% down payment on your home, chances are you’re paying PMI. “Thanks to a new law passed earlier this year, however, you can now deduct these along with your mortgage interest.”

Working Two Jobs?: “…if you work two jobs, you can deduct the costs of commuting from one job to another. It’s considered a legitimate deductible business travel expense.”
