Home office expenses might be one of the most feared business deductions due to concern over disallowance by the IRS. Thus, many taxpayers entitled to the deduction don’t claim it. If you use part of your home exclusively and regularly for conducting business, you may be able to deduct expenses such as mortgage interest, insurance, utilities, repairs, and depreciation for that area. You need to figure out the percentage of your home devoted to your business activities, utilities, repairs, and depreciation.
