The Value of Attending Conventions and Trade Shows

by John Jennings

The most valuable benefit of joining your state and national taxidermy association is the opportunity to attend the annual convention. Trade-show season runs from February to July and is the perfect time to start harvesting the benefits of membership. Pro Tip: When you travel to a convention in the United States, your transportation (flights or mileage), half your meals, a single hotel room, registration fees, and other business expenses are deductible if it provides, maintains, or improves the skills related to your trade or business. Unfortunately, if a spouse or other individual accompanies you, that individual’s travel expenses are not usually tax deductible. Talk with your accountant about legitimate expenses.
