Question
How do I claim business use of my home?

Answer

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 hotel, motel, inn, or similar establishment.
