    Steve's right it can't be written off unless you have a VERY creative tax man!

    hrmmm my tax man told me you can write off discounts. I need to ask him about this because he wrote off the discount we give the church. Man now I hope we dont get an audit.

    You can write off the materials used, but I don't think you could write off income not received. My dad is a retired IRS accountant...I just called him and he said the same. You cannot write off your labor, just materials.
