It’s coming tax time and I’m smiling. Of course, I will pay my due taxes to help fill the government coffers but I know that I work at home and would like a generous refund from the government as a reward for having a home business; in this case, a Swiss MLM health and lifestyle global opportunity.

Many years ago I had the good fortune to listen to Sandy Botkin who has trained millions of small business owners how to get ther taxes down to legal limits.

He also advocates for and builds more belief for a network marketing home business and has has saved me a lot of money by writing off legal expenses.

Listen to his explanation of how some people may pay up to 58% of their gross income in taxes and debt.

Watch “Why a Home Based Business Makes Dollars and Sense”

At the start, managing your business’s financial accounts and filing a tax return can be challenging at the start.

But it’s also important to take advantage of all the available home office expenses to maximize the tax benefits of a home business

Home Business Expenses

Note: these are Canadian home business tax deductions, but Americans have similar laws.

I can deduct business-use-of-home expenses based on the proportion of my home that is being used as office space. This expense can be claimed because my home is either my principal place of business or I use it on a regular basis to earn business income. A similar percentage will be deducted from utility bills and long distance servkices.

Home Office Supplies, Fixtures, and Equipment

Office supplies such as printer paper, paper clips, pens, postage, ink cartridges, etc. are fully deductible.

Office fixtures and equipment, including desks, chairs, filing cabinets, computers, lamps…
