    Dutch robber claims gun as a deductible expense

    And you thought America had some odd tax laws!

    I'm not a criminal..I'm an investor.


    I was just kidding about comparing it to American laws...it's no worse than some of the idiotic lawsuits that people get away with here. :scowl:

    It's not much different from US laws where you can claim business expenses as tax deductions. The only thing that separates the two is that the US tax laws have a caveat disallowing anything used in an illegal activity.

    I'm sure that caveat only came about after someone legitimately deducted a business expense from an illegal activity.;)

    That's why it's odd...because the "business" is robbing. I think we all know that you can deduct legitimate business expenses in America.
