Potential Network Marketing Tax Deductions include:

Home Office Expenses from Small Business: Note that for those in their first year of operation you will need to prorate all home office expenses for the part of the year. Only claim from the month you started.
Income: Note that if you’ve paid more than $750 to any one person you will have to issue T4s.
Sales, Revenue, Fees: It is the taxpayer’s responsibility to track and report all sources of income. This is the gross cash inflow from your clients or customers.
Meals & Entertainment: Total dollars spent taking clients or potential clients out to lunch / dinner. You must keep an accurate record of your receipts with the potential client’s name on the back of the receipt.
