The FSCA Convention is DAYS away!

The FSCA Convention is DAYS away!
YOU CAN DEDUCT CONVENTION EXPENSES FROM YOUR TAXES
If you are paying for the FSCA Convention out of your own pocket, you can deduct the expenses from your taxes. Registration fees for educational conferences are 100% deductible if the education maintains or improves the skills related to the attendee's trade or business. Additionally, your transportation expenses, including airfare, mileage, reasonable taxi and shuttle fares, for traveling from your place of business to the convention are 100% deductible, as are lodging expenses. Meals are 50% deductible. Remember to keep your receipts. Of course, if your employer reimburses you for your expenses, you may not deduct them from your taxes. For further details, check with your tax professional.
Cost:
Convention fees includes Opening Reception (with cash bar), Keynote Speaker, all Breakout Sessions, all morning coffee and afternoon snack breaks, and Delegate Assembly. Note that the discounted hotel rate is not guaranteed after October 10th, 2012. Pre-Convention workshops are not part of the convention registration fee and are an additional $35.00 each. You can also purchase up to two (2) Award Banquet tickets for $40 each. Extra banquet tickets may be purchased for $50.
