<<I have [seen tax breaks]. Gone from employee to self-employed. All

Been there, done that. Most of you on the list will remember my late (and
deeply missed) husband, Jim. He had the misfortune to have a severe cardiac
condition, and to carry on without constant angina needed about a thousand
dollars worth a drugs each month.
I found it a far better deal to work for the state of Illinois, where I got
excellent health care coverage, than to make a six figure income and write
off everything I could legally write off.
On top of that, the IRS took exception to some of the write-offs and sent me
a fond letter asking for $12 000, unless I preferred them to sell all my
property and other belongings.
Oh well, it's just money, right?
