Deduct your side business

If you’re self-employed or have a small business on the side, you can take advantage of many tax deductions. The beauty is some of these mixed-use expenses would have been incurred anyway.

  • Business-related meals and entertainment
  • Mortgage interest or rent
  • Heat, hydro, phone and internet bills
  • Home cleaning supplies
  • Property taxes
  • Auto expenses
