When possible, you want to claim that your office in your home qualifies as a principal place of business, because this classification
Current law gives you two ways to claim your office in the home as a principal office:
If you have an office downtown where you spend 40 hours a week, can you claim that you have an office in your home that qualifies as a principal office if you spend only 12 hours a week working in the home office?
Say it with me: YES YOU CAN!!!! (confetti starts falling)
With the administrative or management rule, you can have your principal office in your home with 12 hours of work even when you work at your other office for 40 hours. This opens up so many awesome deductions. Less tax, more cash!
