generally as a partner - the best way to reduce your expenses is to submit report for all business expenses to the partnership and deduct these on the partnership tax return (form 1065). By doing that - you will reduce taxable income reported on K1 - and that will reduce both - income and self-employment taxes.If you are looking for possible business expenses which might be overlooked - I think following publications might be helpfulTax Guide for Small Business
As you are filing your personal income tax return (form 1040) - generally you may not deduct expenses related to the LLC (those are deducted on form 1065) - but should be concerned about personal deductions which are reported on schedule A.http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040sa.pdf
For most peoples these are - home mortgage interest, state taxes, charitable contributions, etc.Additional large deduction is related to health insurance. If you qualify - the cost of insurance is deducted as an adjustment to income on form 1040 line 29.
