I would venture to guess that NSF (non-sufficent fund) charges from a financial institution could not be written off as a business expense.
However, I can find no definitive language to this effect; as the language speaks only to banking fees.

My gut reaction would be "why wouldn't they be?" but for those more knowledgeable than I it may be useful to know whether we're talking about fees for bad checks you wrote or fees charged by your bank when you deposited bad checks from customers.
