  1. Hi Tom,
    I registered for your webinar on Jan. 19th. Followed the instructions and gave credit card info. But did not get confirmation and lost the page. Would you please check on that.

  2. I went to a state seminar and the speaker mentioned that Acupuncture, Massages, and Chiropractic are Businees Expense , er Tom Copeland, not as a medical deduction expense.
    is this true?

    I enjoyed your seminar for the Douglas County Childcare Assoc.

    • These expenses would not be a business expense if they were for you. That’s because they are considered personal by the IRS, like clothing or yoga or a gym membership. They may make it easier to do your work, but they are personal, not business.
