When you have EMPLOYEE - there will be additional labor laws applies - and that law is based on the physical place where employees are working.
So if employees are working in Greece - local laws will apply - so we need to be VERY clear with that.If these are independent self-employed contractors - who provide services for your business - the situation would be different.Let me review your other questions as well...
I purchased a 2 year old BMW in August. I usually lease my cars. How will this be handled on my taxes differently from the leases?\
With the car you own - and that is used for business purposes - there are two options - you may deduct the business use of your car based on the standard mileage rate OR you may deduct actual car expenses (based on receipts plus depreciation of the cost of your car) Most taxpayers are using standard mileage rate as it require less record keeping - but generally you may use either method.
Sorry for delay... I was sure all issues were addressed,but somehow my posts were lost in teh universe...I have a daughter in college in Florida. What expenses can I deduct there?Most likely you are still eligible to claim your daugher as a dependent.While she might live at different location close to schoiol - that is considered as temporary and she is still treated as living with you.In additrional - you may deduct her medical expenses, health insurance, etc.If theer are educational expenses - you might be eligible for educational deductions or credits.
I rehab houses. Sometimes I buy in one year and sell in another. Do you think it is better to claim the expenses in the same year the home is sold or when they are incurred?That is not a matter of choice...If houses are for sale to customers - that is your inventory.Also regarding building cost which generally must be capitalized.You are subject to the uniform capitalization rules if you do any of the following in the course of a trade or business or an activity carried on for profit:-- Produce real or tangible personal property for use in the business or activityUnder the uniform capitalization rules, you must capitalize direct and indirect costs incurred during the pre-production and pre-sale periods in addition to the actual production period.See for referencehttps://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Cost-Segregation-Audit-Technique-Guide---Chapter-6.1-Uniform-Capitalization
