Q I quit my job this year and started a sole proprietorship. It’s going well, but the business will show a loss in 2007. Can I deduct business assets I bought against my salary under ? E.P., Houston
A Yes. The Sec. 179 deduction may offset taxable income from all your business activities. The maximum deduction for 2007 is $125,000. But you might choose instead to write off business assets over time through regular depreciation deductions. Reason: The prolonged deductions can offset taxable income and self-employment tax in future years when your business begins to turn a profit.
