Entertainment Expenses

Such expenses are deductible by employees and self-employed taxpayers only if the expenses are directly related to or associated with a trade, business, or profession. To prevent abuses, strict substantiation requirements must be satisfied in order to deduct entertainment expenses. The deduction for qualified business entertainment is generally limited to 50 percent of cost.
