Tuesday Tax Tip

Experienced in:

New Business Part III:  A key feature of a business is that you do it to make a profit.  You often engage in a hobby for sport or recreation, not to make a profit.  You should consider nine factors when you determine whether your activity is a hobby.  Make sure to base your determination on all the facts and circumstances of your situation.  For more information about “not-for-profit” rules see Publication 535, Business Expenses.
