If you use it for work, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to write it off, or at least part of it off. Good luck! ;-D

Check with your accountant but as a business expense it can be a partial deduction. I've never gotten a full deduction on something like that.

Even the IRS knows donkey about tax laws. I just file my W2 and don't write off a thing... I can't figure the damn thing out, how worth it is it anyway?

You can write off the portion you use for work. You could probably try and say you use it a little more than you really do, but that's up to you.

I am no tax expert, but I worked in a Tax Office for 3 years. You can write off almost anything thats a business expense that your employer doesn't cover. You can write off the miles on your car for the drive to and from work even.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
