It's true....

I use my new rigs for my business and just surf the street in between the time I enter the data I need to save...that way it's 99% business so the business pays for it and I can write it off...

Because it depreciates so rapidly I build a new one every 2 years for the business....


Another way to do it is build it yourself and rent it to your business...but then you cannot write it off as far as I know...but you can write off the rent...I dont mess with this because it gets too complicated to keep track of usage...

Thank you Wevsspot and Dr. Bowtie for teaching me the ways of the Force. Now I must go and apply my teachings so that I too can become a Jedi Knight like my mods before me.:P
