I have some gas reciepts for 727.02
Car maint. 710.37 (fiero only)
Insurance 734.00 (fiero only)
Other expenses, Cell (about 8 months worth) and inet connection 1313.00
How can you claim all that stuff? I though you could only claim those type of expenses if you make them "business" expenses. I don't know what you're doing for a living, so maybe that's why I'm confused. I've tried itemizing but I usually end up worse off than if I took the the standard deduction (my interrest isn't enough to make it worth while).
If I itemize everything listed above, I only get about a $3500 deduction. A standard deduction for a single person is $5000, so it's way more than that.
Heck, I'd love to claim all of that stuff if I can. Maybe I can and I don't know it? (I'm definitely no expert on tax laws). **** , that would get me back a ton more on federal. I pretty much broke even this year. Last year I had my withholdings out of wack and ended up owing nearly $1000 to the damn feds.
thanks for any info
...show me the money
