WYCOTAX would like to greet you and your family Merry, merry Christmas! We will make it merrier, by giving Holiday Travel Tax Tips within USA just for you.
You can deduct all of your travel expenses if your trip was entirely business related. However, there is a special exemption on this rule. If there are holidays and weekends in between your business trip, the accommodation expenses you spent on these holidays & weekends are considered business deductions.
For example, you have a business appointment on Friday and another appointment on following Monday, Saturday and Sunday are business days. The same thing applies this coming Holiday. If you have business meetings on the 24th and 26th of December, Christmas day is part of your business trip. This is true even though you use holidays and weekends for sightseeing, visiting friends, or other non-business activity.
