I know we are still a little ways off on tax time, but I was wondering what I should do. I'm definately not in the lawn mowing business big time like most of you, but I did purchase a new mower this year primarily for my own place. Invested $7000 in a new JD z-track. Anyway, I picked up 10 lawns to help earn a little more money and help pay for my mower. What I was wanting to know about is whether or not I need to report my income made on these accounts (which probably doesn't total over $4000), and is there anyway I can write off my mower as a business expense, or is there a whole lot more to this? Anyone with some advice on what to do here would be appreciated. Or, future advice would be great. Thanks.
