Automobiles, meals, business gifts, and entertainment are deductible if they are documented in accordance with specific IRS requirements. This program addresses how tax practitioners can work with their clients to help ensure that these legitimate deductions are not lost due to sloppy or inadequate recordkeeping. The IRS views these deductions as "low hanging fruit," and often looks to them first when auditing business clients. Taxpayers regularly lose cases involving these expenditures because they are not adequately documented; even though it is clear from the facts that the expenditures were legitimately incurred in connection with the taxpayer's business.
