Could I tax write-off bounced check and bank overdraft fees?

Answers

is this your bounced check or one of a client?

if the client's check bounced, your reduce your cash in bank account and also reduce your income account, thereby already claiming it as a loss

and yes the fees are expenses you can deduct

but if these are your personal checks, no

#1

Your question, as phrased, makes no sense.

#2

Only if it's business-related.

***********

business related = you own a business

#3

If you're the one who wrote them, no.

If you're a business, somebody wrote you a bad check, and your bank charged YOU a fee for it, yes.
