Would you like to be audited? Because that’s how you get audited if you want to take a home office deduction while on w2. It’s not allowed, only self employed or contractors on 1099

Pretty sure TCJA removed the home office deduction if you’re employees and not self employed. Some states allow you to deduct expenses not reimbursed by your employer but that doesn’t mean you can deduct a home office

Nope. Not allowed. My wife manages our rental properties so we deduct her part of the office.

https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/home-office-deduction Only exists for self employed people, not us! https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-reminds-taxpayers-of-the-home-office-deduction-rules-during-small-business-week

It’s almost like they planned it …. Get rid of the deduction in 2018 and then BAM pandemic!

Another conspiracy
