My Accountant Says ???

Went to my accountant today to discuss my tax filings for next year and my Social Security checks.
My wife and I are both Realtors now and often show homes by ourselves to people we don't know at all hours of the day and night. Of course I am concerned for her safety and mine.
I asked my accountant if I could claim my pistols I purchased last year as a deduction? He said yes and also ammunition for practice. So I will claim my Super Carry Ultra Plus and the Solo I purchased for my wife last year. What do you think about that?

That's exactly what I think Chuck. But most important you should have seen the look on my wife's face. Kind of took the her by surprise. I am already planning on a new compact sometime this year.

Technically we are independent contractors. My sales manager just said don't carry in the office. I understand the importance to keep them concealed because of the impression a client may get.

That's great...My gf works as a mortgage banker and travels locally 70% of the time.She asked if she could carry while she was going between realtors and lenders and her company said no way that it was against company policy.

Just being retired, I don't think I would qualify, but I'm real glad someone can benefit from a tax standpoint by carrying a firearm. Most of the time I feel the IRS has a gun to MY back!!

I wonder if I could claim some guns and ammo. Last week I had a guy in the office- homeless and kind of crazy. He wouldn't leave. I finally got him out and about five minutes later he came barging in past the receptionist and into my office, only this time he was carrying some sort of bag.

I had no idea what he has- gun-knife-sword- who knows? It was very tense I forcefully demanded that he leave. I directed my secretary to call 911. I had my hand in my pocket on my .38 the whole time. I was prunning scenarios through my head. He finally left, a few seconds before the police arrived.

They knew who he was and said they would find him and issue a trespass warning.

The folks in the office know I carry, but they asked if I had my gun with me. They know I always do, but still they asked, and were glad I had it.

Check with your accountants. I was pleasantly surprised by the answer.

Glad the encounter worked out for you. Ask your account if personal protection is a deduction. I can't hurt to try!!
