Re: Need to buy a Laptop for work, how much is deductable?
I'm not a professional tax preparer, but unless you're a contractor, it is not deductable.
I know an engineer trying to write off a laptop purchase with personal funds would find himself in an audit in short order.
Anytime you get to write something off it is based on your personal tax bracket.
The write off would probably be pretty small for you, again, incurring the risk of audit.
If it's for work, try to get your work to reimburse you a portion. Much safer, better choice.
