Thanks for writing this post. I just started a new venture and I have to store some stuff in my house. I knew about the deductions but this just reminded me to start keeping my records. I knew I was forgetting something. :)
Well, Ben, I am glad we could be of service. Also, we appreciate your kind words.
When it comes to deducting anything on your tax return, good RECORDS are the single most important thing to have.
