What amount of these investigation costs can Juliet deduct if she

Expert’s answer

If Juliet incurs expenses of $18,000 (accounting fees, marketing survey,etc.) in exploring its business potential and parents have agreed to loan her the money required to start the business, all these investigation costs can be deducted if she opens the business in July 2011 and no costs will be deducted, if she decides not to open the bookstore.
