As a speech therapist, there are several specific deductions that you can claim on your yearly tax report. These may include:
- Continuing education expenses: If you take additional coursework or attend seminars to maintain your professional certification, these costs can often be deducted.
- Home office expenses: If you use part of your home exclusively for your work, you can typically write off a part of your housing expenses.
- Professional memberships: The fees for membership in professional organizations and unions may be deductible.
- Mileage and travel: If you travel to meet with clients, attend conferences or other professional gatherings, you can often deduct those costs.
- Equipment and supplies: Devices, therapeutic materials, office supplies, and necessaries required in your work are also deductible.
Remember, the specifics of what you can deduct might vary depending on your individual situation. It is always recommended to seek advice from a professional tax accountant or a bookkeeper.

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.
