Sex toys
crazy deductions sex toys

Just because it's a little racy doesn't mean it can't be considered a valid deduction.

Vincent Porter, a CPA from Arlington, Texas, found that out this year when a client wanted to write off $200 worth of sex toys.

The client, an exotic dancer, was able to deduct the cost of a few vibrators, lubricant and lingerie as business expenses because she used them for her webcam work.

"If a roofer can deduct the cost of his tools used in his line of work, then an 'actress' may deduct her 'tools' used to generate revenue as well," Porter said. "As long as she was not doing anything illegal, then we could support the deduction."
