If I attend a trade expo, can I deduct this same expense?
I am thinking about staying the in Hyatt Union Hotel, where the trade expo will be held.
It's a business expense providing you are a business trader before the expo.
If you are an investor, it's disallowed as an investment expense - a miscellaneous itemized deduction in excess of 2% of AGI - under section 274(h)(7).
