Re: [DML] Re: A question about our vendors, with my DMA hat on.



Claude was referring to all business expenses, be they advertising or
donations of goods and services, as a tax write-off, which they technically
are.  These charges are simply written off the top of the gross revenue
before taxes.

What you're describing sounds more specifically like a tax shelter, just one
type of write-off.

I've run several small businesses, and pretty much anything we can charge
against the business can be classified generically as a "write-off".

As this relates to the D vendors, I don't know how Claude can possibly speak
for them all.  When they visit the tech-sessions (usually on weekends and
their personal time), sure, they can write-off all their travel expenses and
even the goods donated to the raffles.  But their personal time spent?  I
seriously doubt it.
