Can I Deduct Business Clothing?


Question

 

I know that IRS publications say that clothing is not deductible, but it seems to me that if I purchase a special business suit for my sales activity and I wear this suit only for business and never for personal use, all or part of that suit must be deductible. After all, food (inherently personal) that is part of business entertainment is deductible. Can you shed more light on this? (A.B., Southboro, MA)

 

Answer

 

Yes!
