Is Web Hosting Tax Deductible?

The IRS has not given formal guidance for this specific question and consequently web hosting fees are considered “dues and subscriptions” which is to say, they are tax deductable. As with all things tax related please consult your accountant and see the IRS rules outlined for software.
