If you’ve talked to your accountant, he or she has probably told you that the new GOP tax plan that passed before Christmas will upend how they do accounting.  Some things we know: You’ll want to pay your state and local taxes (SALT) before the end of the year since next year they won’t be deductible from your federal taxes. Also, many deductions including moving expenses, alimony, student loan interest and tuition and fees will no longer be write-offs. So you might want to prepay or pay early what you can of these.

Most importantly for us, we know that business expenses are going to be deductible for the rest of the year so we’ll be highlighting items for the next week that can be written-off if you either have a business or can write-off purchases that go toward your business (as always consult your/an accountant for tax advice). So we present, Write-off Week 2017. Head below for some of the best deals so far and don’t forget to bookmark our handy guide:

All because you’re limited by the movement of a mouse cursor that has to be tracked on the desk where your mouse sits. Palette Gear aims to change that with their Control modules. From knobs to sliders, they give absolute precise control when it comes to editing photos and videos, all for a fairly affordable price.

It is generally a good idea to have a method of backing up your footage, and with large 4K video files, microSD Cards get filled up rather quickly.
