    If you supply Gatorade to your employees, can you write it off on your taxes?

    It is called "cost of goods or service". Never leave home without it. Even bought an ice maker off eBay to fill the coolers every morning to save on buying ice. Saved time and money.

    I never buy ice and we work in Texas all day long! I have three two-gallon juice jugs that we fill with water and swap out in the deep freezer. Drop one in a five gallon Igloo cooler and plenty of cold water all day.
