Yes, those are depreciable items. He can list them as assets and depreciate them over time or use the Sec 179 and use the total cost (up to the limit) all in the first year.
Unless he plans to buy new equipment every year I generally advise to depreciate some of the cost over the life of the asset. That way each year he can rely on an expense that will lower his Gross Income.
Please let me know if you need clarification. If you do not then a positive 5 star rating is appreciated.A positive 5 star rating is appreciated so I get credit for the response.
He can deduct the fuel costs for the equipment and the gas for his vehicle. His vehicle is either the cost to run or the miles.
