So I've been a gigging musicians for many years, and I've never tried to write anything off before. I started up a new band last year and bought a bunch of new gear. We gigged some and made a relatively small amount of money. I'd like to write off the gear I bought as a business expense, and Turbo-Tax doesn't seem to have a problem with it. Anybody else write off their gear as a business expense as a semi-pro (gig 24 times per year)?
