Writing VPN service off as a tax deduction

I am getting ready to file my taxes for this year and i have an LLC that i have used for IT consulting. I am curious if anyone has written of their payments to a VPN service as a tax deduction?

The way i see it is it would be considered a tech tool to check routes and verify access control to allowing or not allowing access of Non-US based IP addresses and visa versa.

Has anyone done this?

As long as you can show an auditor how you use it in the course of your business then you can take the deduction.

Agree with HarryH3 See Profile. I'd honestly ask your tax advisor / lawyer as it's more a tax / legal than technical question,
and I'm not to sure how tight or loose they are with their definition of "IT" in your jurisdiction... especially at audit time.

it may depend on what you have listed as your profession/title on your tax return. as a "computer network consultant" my accountant allows me to deduct pretty much everything having to do with my home computer, and i have gone audit free for 30 years.
