Computing the Amount of Home Office Deduction

Generally, the amount of the deduction depends on the percentage of the home that is used for business. The deduction will be limited if gross income from the business is less than the total business expenses.

A taxpayer can use any reasonable method to compute business percentage, but the most common methods are to:

Divide the area of the home used for business by the total area of the home, or
Divide the number of rooms used for business by the total number of rooms in the home if all rooms in the home are about the same size.
