From photoshoots to conferences to networking events, the life of a content creator often involves a lot of travelling. For most people, this can be a pretty major perk.
Another perk? If you’re travelling for work, you can write off almost all of the expenses associated with the trip.
If you drive to meet with a client, have coffee with a coworker, or attend a conference — you can claim car-related write-offs. These include expenses like gas, car maintenance, insurance and registration, parking, tolls, and the annual depreciation of your car.
If you’re travelling out of the city or out of the country, airfare, train tickets and rental car fees can also be written off.
When you travel for work, lodging expenses such as hotel rooms or Airbnb bookings are write-offs.
When you're travelling for work, all meals are tax-deductible. That’s right, even takeout.
