You know what cost that should be reimbursable? Divorce attorney fees since our line of work is somewhat responsible for the high divorce rates amongst consultants

You cannot expense it. However, you can treat it as an Unreimbursed business expense on your taxes (since you don't use it for anything else)

D1. How many business trips do you take v personal? Take a percentage then...unless you like paying taxes. You are correct however, I was audited-and the IRS owed me another 7K.

Haha bets that Deloitte 3 has been audited, any takers? That is a super shady tax deduction. Everyone uses their travel bag for personal trips, come on.

I need more consultant friends 😑 Friends can’t even afford a weekend getaway that would only cost $100. You’d think by mid to late 20s, that wouldn’t be a ginormous expense

Deloitte - if you use your personal phone for work, does the company reimburse for the plan? If so, how much? Also, if you use your own phone, do they impose any restrictions/controls on the phone?

What would you do if you saw someone who worked beneath you and was laid off claiming your work in their portfolio? In one example, I designed a main UI image and all they did was resize the background for the different splash pages. Another, I designed a template for a type of marketing piece, and all they did was sub in new copy and headshots. Advice?
