Sauer v. Commissioner - Have another energy drink

The Sauer case was one of my favorite cases that I ever did - it was about a Red Bull promoter who stored energy drinks in her NYC apartment.  The issue was whether this was deductible as a business expense.  (ultimately, it was)

Deductions for business use of a home can be allowed if it's "dedicated space" - as part of the case we submitted floor plans and witness testimony describing the Red Bull cases in the apartment.  While it wasn't a big case, it was definitely worth doing - Miss Sauer saved about $4400.
