I am about to start working from home full time for my former employer that is based in Oklahoma. I have accepted a position as Marketing Director so I will have various expenses that I'm not sure will be in our budget this first year. Such as, gas (driving to OK 4x a month), magazine subscriptions, a new computer, printer, ink, paper, etc... IF they don't provide these things for me are there tax benefits for me if I pay for the things out of pocket?
Any other advice you all might have on what I can write off, what I should keep track of, etc?
I will be a full time salaried employee we just haven't discussed what all they will provide up front yet. It's a very big company BUT business is way down and I am lucky to get this job at all as I proposed it to them and they loved it. It's not like they were in the position to just go out and hire someone.
