What are your thoughts?
Seriously, I think it depends on a lot of things, including what you currently do for income. I think if you are SERIOUSLY interviewing overseas, with a realistic likelihood that it could lead to employment, then a (small) portion of your travel expenses could be deducted. But only those that apply directly to the "job search". (Airfare would be out, for example, unless it was a specific additional flight you had to take just to get to an interview.)
If you're just looking for a way to deduct your vacation, good luck. I've tried to float that one to my tax guy before....he never bites.
But seriously, he's the man to ask.
He's old, rich, and business savvy. And he's really hard to piss off.
Nicest thing anyone has ever said about me.
You hitting on me? Welcome back.
If you pull it off, let me know I'd love to do the same.
A note on the standard deduction: this doesn't apply if you have a separate business and this would be a business expense. Deducted expenses come right off the top--a reduction of your profits, to the point where you can have negative income that offsets your other income. Reason being that most any new business is going to lose money sometimes, especially when it is first getting off the ground.
