Assuming your spouse is a paid employee, he can deduct the iPad if considered an ordinary and necessary business expense.

The IRS defines expense ordinary and necessary expenses this way:

  • An expense is ordinary if it is common and accepted in your industry

  • An expense is necessary if it is helpful and appropriate for your business

If the iPad qualifies per the above, enter in the following area:

  • Type in 2106 in the search box, top right of your screen, then click the magnifying glass

  • Click the jump to 2106 link in the search results.

  • Follow the prompts and onscreen instructions
