I got the same advice last week from my accountant. He said that you can
only write off the actual expenses incurred in the project. So if I paid
someone to code the site for a non-profit, I could deduct that expense - but
not the fees I would have charged the client. Kindof a drag, but I'm a
pushover for the right non-profits anyway.
