I am going to get my taxes done tomorrow. My guy is usually pretty good but looking to see what others use as write offs......Thanks.

Anything that is work related: weapons and supplies, shoes, dry cleaning, clothing that can only be worn at work, haircuts, office supplies, lunch (if you don't get a per diem allowance) those of you that go undercover: hooker dresses, weave, glue on mustaches....you get the point. It is very helpful and makes it a lot easier when yo save the reciepts! Mick

I was looking at some of the things you guys claim as deductions and was amazed that the IRS doesn't have full time staff just to audit cops and their thinking although, I can see the bar tab as a legitimate deduction... I was looking up some deductions and found this web site (http://www.wwwebtax.com/deductions_miscellaneous/miscellaneous_itemized_deductions.htm).

What ever my person writes off. I trust her she specializes in the cop write offs. Her son is a Sargeant.

guns, ammo, training, underwear, socks, under armour tees, boots, knives, union dues, phone bill, internet, mileage to go to training. I think that about covers it.

I have successfully written of 75% of my cell phone bill for the past two years and that is being generous because I could easily show 85%-90%. I bought a new Cannon 35 mm camera for work and wrote it off. I write fo the gym because I am required to take a fitness test every year.
