    Question…I know fees and interest and a few other odds and ends are valid business expenses when dealing with unsecured credit, but do you know if the required deposit needed to open a secured card is valid business expense? i.e. if you opened a secured credit card for $1000 and put down a $1000 deposit, is that $1000 deposit a qualified business expense?

      Hi Allen,

      We can’t say for sure, as this isn’t something we’ve encountered before. That said, we don’t think it qualifies, since you’re not actually losing the money as you’ll get it back with interest (theoretically). Sorry we couldn’t offer a definitive answer for you.
