You want some fun deductions? Well, 50% of the cost of a qualified business meal can be deducted (when you take a business prospect out to dinner). This can make taking clients out to dinner a lot more palatable (no pun intended).
The biggest savings of incorporating is not having to pay quarterly self employment taxes, so long as you pay yourself a "reasonable" salary, doing whatever you are doing. Although you will have to pay self-employment tax on that salary, anything earned over and above that will not be subject to self-employment taxation. What's reasonable? Hire a CPA.
Travel expenses can be deducted, generally speaking. And the Federal Government just magnanimously raised the per mile deduction by $0.01. Most relevant for your purposes are probably office supplies and software: but be careful. Software and computers are usually depreciated, or diminish in value over time, so you would be WELL ADVISED to hire a CPA to help you with tax planning.
CPAs love to do this, by the way, and the savings they can think up are sometimes amazing. A qualified tax professional can do wonders for your return. You're probably thinking this all sounds expensive... ...but guess what else is deductible? Fees for professional services for your business! (Though you may have to depreciate the deduction.)
