Client purchases items for patients

Level 2

I have a client who runs a rehab center and he sometimes purchases groceries, clothes, or gets his patients a haircut. Is this an expense for the business? What expense is it?

Is he just an employee?  It's not a 501(c)(3), is it?  Probably, a nondeductible expense.

He is the owner and  the business is 501c3.

@IRonMaN He owns a 501c3?

It's something like the NRA but without private jets to the Bahamas.

But we haven't heard the whole story yet.  Maybe we are dealing with private jets to Cleveland.

501(c)(3) nonprofits don't have owners.  If he's the boss, tell him to take a pay cut and reimburse himself under an accountable plan.

I don't know much about non-profits. This is why I asked the question. Thank you for your help.
