    Would sunblock be considered a legal deduction?

    I go through a few bottles every season.

    It sure is!
    I just bought $300 worth of sun screen wipes and I will write it off.

    the fact that you ask a question like that gets me angry...Be careful make sure you only use that sunscreen for work purposes or you might get audited

    Well, I am usually conservative with my deductions but it never hurts to use any legal deduction be it small or large.

    Seasonal cost of sunblock runs about $50 to $70. So it is not exactly breaking the bank.

    I suppose it is a "neccesary expense for this line of work".

    In any case I started this thread thinking it might spark a list others "small deductions" that I might not have considered.

    Thanks for the replies!
