There isn't a special place to enter start-up costs in MM. It doesn't matter because you don't have to identify which are start-up expenses and which are not. Just claim them the same way.

Put all of the expenses you name under household expenses. You can only claim something as 100% if it's used 100% for your business. I would claim the door handle lock as 100% business. I'm not sure about the box for ammo. Is the ammo in the locked room? If so, I wouldn't deduct any of it.

The ammo is in a fire safety box that is locked but it in my bedroom closet. the door handle i bought is down stairs on a closet door with the guns in there. I purposely bought it for the guns to be locked up. It didnt require a lock til daycare

So then all the baby stuff i can claim 100 percent I dont have a baby my daughter is 7 yrs old. I wouldnt have a highchair is it wasnt for daycare. thanks!

I am with you on all these taxes, for the life of me I can't seem to get Turbo Tax to give me 100% on all my toys, infant furniture and so on. I have NO children and all this stuff is used 100%.

I hate Taxes I need to find someone in my area to do my taxes!!

Okay, deduct 100% of the fire safety box for the ammo. Also claim 100% of the baby stuff since your children are older.
