Conferences and Business Meetings as Tax-Deductible Expenses

The Expenses Associated with Business Meetings are Partially Deductible


If you or your employees attend conferences or meetings associated with your business, the costs associated with these meetings are at least partially deductible. If you fly to your destination, you can usually deduct the cost of your plane ticket. You can deduct the cost of driving to the meeting using the IRS standard mileage rate. The IRS generally prefers you travel the cheapest way.
