one more month and it will be time to do the taxes. Its my first year doing taxes in lawncare and i would like to ask a few questions. My accountant says i cant deduct my tools all at once and i have to deduct my tools over a four year period. Is this mandatory. Also i met a guy who years ago helped kids get off drugs years ago and they would allow him 8 thousand dollars write off for each kid. They no longer do this with kids but will give a 9k deduction for ex cons. The downside of course is youll be working with a criminal.Im not that desperate but i wnated to ask everyone if there are ways to legally help lower taxes in the lawncare business.
