Imagine I have a personal assistant, ie, an employee or independent contractor who helps me with my personal tasks, eg, booking personal travel, running personal errands, purchasing personal products & services, etc.
Could I deduct (from my taxable personal income) the wages that I pay him?
I live in the United States in Connecticut. I'm self-employed, working on an app, but I don't make any money doing that, and I don't pay myself. I make money from my personal assets. Ie, I earn dividends, capital gains (from selling stocks, bonds, cryptocurrencies, etc), and interest (from savings accounts & loans).
