I'm employed full-time (not a contractor).
I own my own licenses for tools like ReSharper, Beyond Compare, etc. In addition, I pay for various training and learning resources like Safari Books Online, Pluralsight and Code School.
The software tools, I use primarily at my full-time job but I do occasionally use them for side work. The training/learning resources I use on my own time for my own benefit.
I would like to know if licenses for tools and services like these can generally be claimed as deductions come tax time?
I was thinking about posting this over at programmers but seems more appropriate here. For tax purposes, I am in the US and more specifically, Florida. However, this question seems general enough.
