Salaries and Wages as Tax-Deductible Expenses

Other Items may also Qualify as Salaries and Wages


Salaries and wages paid to employees of your small business are tax-deductible expenses. However, other items also qualify under the salary and wage category with regard to employee wages. A partial list includes sick leave, vacation pay, bonuses, education expenses, and reimbursements for employee business expenses. These are also tax-deductible.

A full list and explanation of each can be found in IRS Publication 334.
