There are instances in which a person who buys or sells

If you are involved in
interior design and you purchase artwork with the idea of using it on
behalf of a client, that purchase normally will be considered a
legitimate business expense. Therefore, you likely will be able to write
off or deduct the cost of such artwork from your profits. Keep in mind
that when you use the artwork in a decorating project, or when you sell
the artwork to a client, any money you earn for that sale above and
beyond what you paid for the artwork originally will be considered
income for your business.
Although there are ways in
which artwork can be used as a means to obtain a tax write off or
deduction, the primary focus of purchasing, selling or trading in art
cannot be tax-related. There are ways in which purchasing, holding and

is not an essential element of that type of investment.
