Other Tax Deductions for Developers

  • For C++ developers: Cite the number of rubber ducks that are destroyed in frustration.
  • For Java developers: Claim your processes as hungry dependents that drain you of resources.
  • For PHP developers: Submit the total number of used boxes of tissues (for the endless tears as victims of other developers’ taunts).
  • For JavaScript developers: Claim your two week vacation to the beach as a medical expense, since it was the only remedy for the insanity from debugging your latest project.
  • For C# developers: If you’ve even spent one moment or penny with the developer program for the Windows App Store, declare that value as a capital loss of your soul.
