Q. My partner has convinced me to buy iPads for all our employees. Can we deduct the full cost? S.B., Cincinnati
A. Yes, as long as employees use the iPads for business purposes. Even though such high-tech devices are considered “listed property” with strict record-keeping rules imposed by the IRS, your business can generally write off the entire cost through a combination ofdeductions, bonus depreciation deductions and regular depreciation deductions.

Tip: The value of any “personal use” component is a taxableto the employees.
