More About Business Use of Your Home (Including Use by Daycare Providers) by Department of the Treasury
The purpose of this publication is to provide information on figuring and claiming the deduction for business use of your home. The term "home" includes a house, apartment, condominium, mobile home, boat, or similar property which provides basic living accommodations. It also includes structures on the property, such as an unattached garage, studio, barn, or greenhouse. However, it does not include any part of your property used exclusively as a ho-tel, motel, inn, or similar establishment. Qualifying for a Deduction gives the requirements for qualifying to deduct expenses for the business use of your home (including special rules for employees and special rules for storing inventory or product samples). For special rules that apply to daycare providers, see Daycare Fa-cility. After you determine that you qualify for the deduction, Figuring the Deduction explains the expenses you can deduct using either your actual expenses or the simplified method. The simplified method is an alternative to calculating and substantiating actual expenses. Where To Deduct explains where a self-employed per-son, employee, or partner will report the deduction. This publication also includes information on the following. Selling a home that was used partly for business. Deducting expenses for furniture and equipment used in your business. Records you should keep. Finally, this publication contains worksheets to help you figure the amount of your deduction if you use your home in your farming business and you are filing Schedule F (Form 1040), you use your home for work as an employee, or you are a partner and the use of your home resulted in unreimbursed ordinary and necessary expenses that you are required to pay under the partnership agreement. If you used your home for business and you are filing Schedule C (Form 1040), you will use either Form 8829 or the Simplified Method Worksheet in your Instructions for Schedule C.
