I use the kidkare program because it does a great job with taxes.

It says "Office Expenses: Schedule C Expense. Examples: Association membership dues, birthday cards, books, calendar, education/training workshops, magazines, membership in Redleaf National Institute, NAFCC accreditation or CDA credential, online internet service, paper, stamps, etc."

Then you can decide if it is 100% business expense or time/space expense per entry.

The free trial may be worth it for you.

It doesn't matter where you put business expenses.
