Tax Deductions For Home Based Businesses
A big advantage of​ working from home is​ the​ tax benefits of​ operating a​ home based business .​
Working from home allows you​ to​ deduct portions of​ bills that you​ are already paying to​ live there.
You can deduct home expenses if​ you​ actually work in​ your home .​
It is​ easiest to​ do this if​ you​ have a​ room set aside for your business .​
Figure out how bit that room is​ in​ proportion to​ the​ house,​ and you​ can deduct expenses using that percentage.
For example,​ if​ your place of​ doing business takes up 5% of​ your house,​ you​ can deduct 5% of​ your heating expenses for the​ days you​ work .​
(In other words,​ if​ you​ don't work weekends,​ you​ can't deduct for weekends.) you​ can deduct items such as​ mortgage interest (though not your mortgage itself),​ electricity,​ telephone,​ insurance,​ and expenses for maintenance and repair .​
In general,​ you​ can deduct the​ portion of​ expenses that directly relates to​ your business.
You can deduct costs for your internet service provider in​ proportion to​ the​ amount you​ use it​ on​ business,​ too .​
If it's used completely for business you​ can deduct it​ all,​ but be certain before you​ do this that you​ are not using it​ for other reasons.
The nature of​ your home based business is​ not critically important .​
What is​ most important is​ for you​ to​ review the​ related IRS regulations and make sure that your business and the​ manner in​ which you​ intend to​ operate it​ will qualify as​ a​ home based business.
The tax benefits of​ operating a​ home based business enable you​ to​ deduct things you​ would otherwise be paying in​ full .​
If you​ are considering a​ business from home,​ it's a​ good way to​ lower your costs .​
This is​ just one more advantage of​ working from home.
