If I work as a musician but it's not my regular full-time job, can I deduct any equipment that I buy? If so, let's say I purchase $5,000.00 worth of equipment but the first year I only earn $1,000.00. Is there a limit to the amount I can deduct? Also, is there a minimum amount that I would have to earn to take any deductions?
