Customer Question

I'm self employed and my spouse works for me. When I travel for business and my spouse accompanies me, are the travel expenses 100% or 50% deductible?

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. It depends if your spouse has a business reason to be there. If you are taking her just to keep you company or entertain your guests, than you can only deduct expenses as if you traveled alone. For instance you can deduct 100% of hotel room or car rental but only your portion of air fare.
