Tax Deduction

COMMENT: Well it looks like the coronavirus is going to cause a major problem because everyone will be deducting their home offices.


ANSWER: You better check with your accountant. It is my understanding that if you are a W2 employee, you cannot take a home office deduction. Currently, you need to have self-employment income to benefit from home office deduction. This is going to cause real problems now that so many people are forced to work remotely. I seriously doubt the Democrats will allow a deduction for working remotely.
