    You can definitely deduct the rent you pay for your chair as a barber. Rent is any amount you pay for the use of property you do not own. In general, you can deduct rent as an expense only if the rent is for property you use in your trade or business.

    Please see this link below as a point of reference when you are preparing your tax return. You may see a number of other expenses you are entitled to deduct from your sales.
