    Binoculars
    Sunglasses
    Scaffolding
    Window Washer Uniform
    Mountain Climbing Gear (those shoes aren't cheap)
    Fake Nose
    Gloves
    Camera
    Video recorder
    Burn Cell Phone (and some other spyware purchased from a guy in Times Square)
    Black Turtleneck, Black Pants, Black Socks, Black Shoes, Black Coat, Black Hat (NY streetwear)

    I'm thinking the last set of items aren't (but I can wear them sometimes), but I can deduct the rest, right?

    P.S. The following are on Ebay: Blond wig & redhead wig (Mad Men era from my mom)

    They
    Are
    Out
    There

    I've sold a few photos to a few English pap agencies and just want to be sure to start off right for next year....I'm expecting very lucrative residuals on these pics...

    Well, I'm not the only one expecting lucrative residuals from these pics....

    Although it was really, really boring stuff going on...YAWN...was drinking TONS of tea...

    I am guessing that was you I saw on the roof of the second tower of the hotel I am staying in.

    You will have to work harder next time, you need to stalk from the day I arrive and hang out in the lobby to see which direction I take.

    Just tried to upload an amazing pic of the Chrysler building which I took from my hotel window but Flickr is not behaving. However top rated stalkers will be aware of where I spent the afternoon today as there are lots of butterfly pictures on my Facebook profile.

    I've always loved the Chrysler building. I don't know what it is about it, but it has always been my favorite piece of architecture in the world.

    I was a little closer than that, Mr. Cain (P.S. stalking is a bad thing, papping a foreign PCO is generally considered within the realms of polite company). CK Obsession? Sniff? Sniff?

    To me, there is no place like New York. Every visit has been special, but I'm a complete museum and theatre nerd. I keep reading that the theater district is for tourists, but I still love it.

    Seriously, hope it was a productive trip for you and educational. Your website is very informative and user friendly. I know we have a long way to go to improve things, but hopefully we are moving in the right direction.

    Hi,

    Yeah its a major icon of a building and one of the finest pieces of architecture in the world.

    Not a fan of time square and Broadway myself as its too flashing lights but I do have to pass through to get down to hells kitchen which is a hood I can hang in.

    Mind you that's one of the great aspects to NYC you can find what you are looking for in one city and often within a short walk.

    I am not a tax expert, so you'd want to consult one, but I believe whether these things are tax deductible depends on whether staking spying is a hobby or an income-producing profession.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Right now, its just a few bucks for action type photos...I was able to take a number of great shots as he ran from me down Broadway. I almost got arrested after knocking that cop off his horse in central park...got a horse cause my lasso skills aren't good on foot.

    If you notice, loubugs and Paul Bello haven't been online for a while...let's just say they are currently tied up and will get back to ya later. There will be an online auction later.

    It's really boring right now...Cain snores.

    TAOT- Just an idea, we can use my tracking abilities and your super spy abilities to start a stalking er I mean.. spying company. Which then would make all your gear tax deductible, shoot me a PM. Also, I am interested in the blond and red wig. I'm sure you understand why, note- our recent PM's. I had a dream.. where I was wearing a red wig

    You are going to make David's head so big, he won't be able to fit into his next hotel room. Meh.. maybe it's a good thing though. He would be much easier to find!

    LOL, someone has already been sending me PM's and emails trying to make my head swell in the hope it prevents me from leaving the states but I have a lot waiting for me back in London.

    I will have to lend TAOT my James Bond style watch with the video camera installed.

    Sssssshhhhhhh, RWhit. Members of The Following only speak of these things in PMs and on burn cells. *

    But great idea about the business. You will need the wigs for it. We now need to find a woman with a bloodhound.

    Believe me, I know about David's head. Between that he is tall and the weight of his boots and leather boxers (the man sleeps in that getup!), it took BBuptown, Abs, and I five freakin hours to get him in the van.

    If you see CAin posting, it is really bedbug undertaker posing as him so there isn't worldwide panic....she has all his passwords.. and can forge his signature.

    *This is a tv show about conspiracy and murder..Rwhit is a skilled bedbug murderer.

    Bwahahahahahaha . . . whoops . . what I meant to say was "Wow David Cain what a saint you are! You must really be sticking to your New Year's resolution!" (However, I'm purely speculating that what you really mean is there might be a few "Oh God's" exclaimed – is that the religion you are referring to?!)

    And, uh, TAOT, if you should just happen to find any from me . . . could you/would you be a sweetie and just go ahead and delete those for me, please?! (You know . . .a couple of bottles of wine, the late night hour, and the knowledge that DC is just a few short hours away . . . .) You might just want to delete those for me?

    Can one go off topic on a OT thread? . . . or I guess technically I'm going back on topic . . . just actually came back from getting my taxes done. REFUND!!!! Hot tub party at my house . . .everyone's invited! And, uh, he doesn't know it yet but Master Cain will be making the trip. (TAOT, could you let him know for me please. I'll text BBUT to steal the van back!) Also, remind him that the south is known for our southern hospitaility!!

    (pssst TAOT, in all the excitement I forgot who called dibs on whom?!)

    TAOT- Awesome! I request the red wig, as I'm naturally dark brunette but had been blonde the past few years. I have never been a red head. Plus I know you mentioned something about blondes with big racks. All you need is the blonde wig and a victorias secret knock-out bra and we are good to go!

    Can we please add the ear/mouth mini walkie talkie things? If we can't find spy style ones, then my daughter has a hello kitty set I'm sure she wouldn't mind loaning us.

    We will also need one of those discreet but not so discreet vans for the surveillance slash get-away van. One with an extra large door, of course to fit his giant head in.

    Bbup wants kq...his assistant helped her a year ago but she's always saying on here that it was a disappointment not to meet kq.

    I think BBUT might have something to say regarding me having dibs on DC. But you left a whole crowd out . . . Can I call shotgun, oh wait, I mean dibs on DS? And what about Mr. May, we can't leave him out. . . . . Perhaps we better discuss this in person or PMs?

    Anyway, I don't have enough money raised for Italy...if you have ever seen Ruthless People, someone's ransom will be much lower than originally expected...

    Abs: You are part of the problem with your calendar and your photos...

    You're going to blame the innocent on your PCO/PMP obsession/addiction?! Seriously?! I've often heard admitting you have a problem is the first step . . .

    Just read my horoscope and it says to listen to the voices in my head

    Your Week Ahead: Sometimes, we make our best decisions in a moment of calm and wisdom. We stand back, think things through and return to our lives with a clear sense of direction. Sometimes we can't do that. There's too much of an urgent nature going on. We have to think on our feet, trust our instant instinct, hope that we are choosing well and then just plough ahead with the unfolding drama. You don't have the luxury of time this week but you do have the luxury of good intuition. Listen to your wisest inner voice

    Hi theyareoutthere

    Tax deduction yes just word it properly.

    Heck. I slide in $600 dollars on this years taxes (deduction)

    It's all in the wording government doesn't allow for pco treatment ok
    They allow for school expenses if your a teacher (wife always puts down $500) so told account to put down $1,100 this year had to replace all her teaching material. Or did we not

    It all how you present it.

    I save every single receipt for purchases I made for my business. That helps a ton. I would never guess how much I spent though.. that's scary. I don't want the IRS knocking on my door.

    Lots of highs and lows huh? TAOT what exactly did you do to him? At least he said there were highs.. the lows must have been the hand cuffs huh?

    Rwhit, he is a big baby...whined the whole time.

    An elderly, rather wealthy of my family got audited every year..taught me everything I know..its all about receipts and a Franklin planner. I only got low four's inheritance since I'm a girl and great niece. But he was a great guy.

    Or just goto the IRS website site plugin in your state they WILL tell you how much your are allow to deduct. Without drawing attention.

    Found this out while filing out finicial data sheet a while back. Owed them couple bucks they wanted to see my financial situation.

    I was afraid to put actual costs for fear of drawing attention.
    Ie. monthly food expense is was gonna put Down $300 (family size 3) on their site it read monthly food expense for the new jersey new York area (family size 3) they allow $620
    Housing in my area allow 1100.
    Let just say had to take out my eraser to "fix" certain items.

    Was able to settle 3,000 taxes for 1,500. Lump sum payment. Again their rules and guidelines NOT mine.

    Take a look.
    IRS just like mafia except are all afraid of them.
    But IRS plays by certain all be unfair rules.
    Mafia well you owe them better own body armor!

    What better? For the IRS Taking the 1500 clear my back taxes or placing me as CNC
    Currently Non Collectable

    It's all in the wording and playing by their rules.
    They tell me 620 is ok for monthly food expense hey good by me etc.

    Thanks, rob. I would say best to use a lawyer or cpas for its advice...

    My friend is a teacher.

    It's really tough that you can't deduct pest control unless a landlord.

    I was joking on this thread. I'm quirky, but I read your post on bedlam plus on the other thread. I know you are here to help.

    Not trying to deduct pest control. No way!

    Again it's how you present it wife a teacher she never buys $500 of teaching material from her own pocket. Yet accountant puts it down because with the IRS it's ok and related to her profession. This year she spent more again not to debate it but IRS looks over your tax return for a minute as long as it "fits" their parameters for your location your ok.

    Same apply to state taxes they ask if you had "gambling winnings" I always put no.
    Yet 690 came out yesterday in NJ Nice payout for me!

    How many people can honestly say they hit the pick 3 and then declare it on their state taxes. ?

    It's about the wording

    David Cain, very glad to hear that you escaped the evil clutches of TAOT and that you are safe and sound back in the UK. Can't wait for the follow-up report of the highs and lows of the trip! (And I think you are safe for a while because it appears TAOT's attention has now been diverted to Italy!!!)

    However, even more delighted to hear the news regarding no traffic on the roads which led to you arriving home safe and sound also!!! I hope you don't experience any jet lag; but if you do, I hope that you have a plan in place to alleviate it!

    Aaaaaahhhhh, good to be home, eh?!

    Abs
