Got the newest Bose Noise cancelling headphones, $450 investment. Is this tax deductible as a business expense?

I don't think so, as the taxation people would argue you could still do your work without those headphones, plus there's no added revenue that you get in relation to the headphones.

But without the headphones, she wouldn't be able to do the work to the best of her ability, and better quality work attracts higher paying clients.

In the US you can claim it as a business expense if it is used for your business. You claim it on your Schedule C.

Thank you for the reply Margaret and others. They are exclusively for my work. I guess you could say they are making me more productive because I am not having to back the audio up as often because the clarity is so much better.

I actually thought of that just when I shut down my laptop so I forgot to update my comment. You're right though. Definitely tax deductible.

I'd kill for a pair of those.

What's the exact model number? And how they sound with music? Good bass, mids highs??
