In general, Website Design & Development costs can be deducted in the year of purchase. Depending on how you structure your business and your tax bracket, the Investment involved in designing a website can provide a tax deduction of up to 40% of your costs.
If your tax bracket is 30% and you invest $500 on a website then you save $150 in taxes so your real out of pocket cost is $350 for the website work. When you consider the costs and the added benefit of improving your online presence, the Investment should pay for itself with new clients.
What else can you deduct?
