I want to make sure I understand this. I have a first meeting/Interview with all potential clients at Starbucks or similar place to meet for the first time and go over a few things. If I buy them and myself a coffee, their child a juice and snack, I can deduct 50% of this cost. If I offer them coffee, juice, snacks at my home when they come to enrollment, should I take a normal food deduction?

Can we deduct meals for ourselves while we are working in our home?

Should I use the standard meal allowance rate?


No, you can't deduct meals you eat at home.
