Affiliates can now take advantage of many tax deductions and tax strategies not available to employees. We advise Affiliates to speak with a CPA to take advantage of these tax laws and deductibles. A CPA will likely have additional strategies and recommendations.
Affiliates are able to deduct the square footage of their home office from their rent or mortgage, including costs of desks, computers, clothing, electricity bill, etc.; not to mention auto costs and expenses, leases and purchases, car washes and oil changes just to name a few.
