As a social worker, you might be eligible for various tax deductions. Typically, expenses that are necessary, ordinary, and directly related to the nature of your work can be deducted. Some examples of potentially tax-deductible expenses for social workers include:
- Work-related traveling expenses (car repairs, gas, public transportation costs).
- Continuing education and professional development costs.
- Job-related supplies and equipment.
- Professional association dues.
- Professional licensing fees.
- Home office expenses (if you meet the IRS requirements).
It's always advisable to consult with a tax professional or a bookkeeper to understand fully how these deductions apply to your personal situation.

Nope! All bookkeeping is completed in-house.
Your bookkeeper will be your main point of contact, but at times you might hear from another member of your team. This is usually when your bookkeeper goes on vacation, is sick, or otherwise unavailable.
We handle the bookkeeping for you but sometimes we’ll need your input, especially at year-end. On average, expect to spend 15 minutes each month answering questions for your bookkeeper, or uploading supporting docs.
