    What really irks me is many people in this forum pay more in taxes than do millionaires, large corporations and politicians . Get a creative accountant who knows the law.

    those guys have the money to work the system. sure we could buy a mower every year to write off but you are still spending money by doing that. you can pay $4k in taxes every year or pay that much making mower payments. there's not really any difference. it's the same money out of your pocket.

    i guess you could keep buying mowers and sell your old ones each year but you really aren't getting ahead by doing that.

    Paid for an accountant, only gross 35k. Worth every penny.
