What is a small business tax deduction?

A small business tax deduction is an IRS-qualifying expense subtracted from your taxable income. According to the IRS, business expenses must be both ordinary and necessary to be considered deductible. The purpose of tax deductions is to reduce the overall total income that is subject to federal and state-imposed taxation.

How do business tax deductions work?
