The most valuable benefit of joining your state and national taxidermy association is the opportunity to attend the annual convention. Trade-show season runs from February to July and is the perfect time to start harvesting the benefits of membership. Pro Tip: When you travel to a convention in the United States, your transportation (flights or mileage), half your meals, a single hotel room, registration fees, and other business expenses are deductible if it provides, maintains, or improves the skills related to your trade or business. Unfortunately, if a spouse or other individual accompanies you, that individual’s travel expenses are not usually tax deductible. Talk with your accountant about legitimate expenses.
