Juicy J counts deductibles for his 1040 Form
Juicy J

I love what I do. But it might be time to think about career advancement if other jobs have perks like these:

Rapper Jim Jones is figuring out how to deal with Uncle Sam next month, and he's considering deducting expenses on his income tax for making it rain. Well guess what, in theory he might have a fighting chance of winning.

Jones is not alone. Bizzy Bone tells TMZ, "I'm giving charity to females who need their light bills paid. So, of course, that's a write-off. You write off your kids, don't you?"

The Game tells TMZ ... making it rain "is good for business and promotion that comes with the lifestyle of a rapper. They bump our music in a strip club, so me giving the girls a little bit of change to shake their ass -- that comes with the business. Everybody wins." -[TMZ]

No word on if Molly, Kush and Hennessy are also deductible. I'm calling my accountant.

If your in sales it's definitely deductible. My accountant told me so.

I'm pretty sure this only works if they keep records of the money they use to tip strippers. What are the chances they can document this deduction if they are audited????????

4:33 - You're thinking through this foolishness way to seriously.

540 this is huge. If I can deduct making it rain, boy let me tell you, I would make it rain so hard all the time.

sixteen thousand to feds ALONE this year. how many lap dances could have been deducted from that?
I'm so glad for Rand Paul standing strong against obama's liberal free stuff giveaway to the terrorists and illegal aliens
