Broken Computer Write Off
 
So one of my darlings spilled my pop that was next to my laptop ( I know I learned my lesson). So I need a new keyboard on it and thankfully for that and labor it's only $65. Since it was a daycare child that spilled it, can I write that 100% off as an expense?

I had a DCM smash into my brand new grill in my driveway (pushed it into the garage door frame a messed that up pretty good, too). I wasn't able to write off because the grill wasn't used for daycare, even though the damage was 100% BECAUSE of daycare.

As far as the keyboard, I replaced my own-it was SUPER easy, and all I had to pay for was the keyboard ($23 from Amazon). You could save a little there.

My laptop is used quite a bit for my daycare, does that make a difference? From KidKare logging my food program food, attendance, daycare facebook page, searching for crafts and recipes?

Not to hijack but I had to replace 2 ceiling fans due to the dcks breaking them.:rolleyes: Can I deduct the cost of those? If the dcks hadn't broken them, they'd still be hanging on my ceiling.
I do not understand why something that is broken by the dc, can't be 100% covered, whether it's used by dc or not. :confused:

Deduct 100% of the cost.
