Tax season: Can you write off your home office if you are temporarily working from home?
That shift to working from home could have a big impact on your income taxes. If you are a 1099 employee then you can take a home office deduction. “A lot of people were expecting to be able to write off their home office when in fact they can’t,” Luis Garcia with the IRS said. If you’re a gig worker, sub contractor of self employed -- or have a side hustle -- and use your home office only for that business then you can get the home office deduction. It’s important to note that if you’re thinking of selling your home in the near future then you’re going to have to give back the deduction you receive now.
