As long as the space is separate and not used for any other purpose (you don’t use the desk for writing out your personal bills, for example) you could take a home office deduction. If an IRS auditor wants to come out and see it, I’d buy some sort of screen and partition it off before he or she comes out. Be aware that home office expenses often trigger audits, especially if the amount deducted is high compared to the business income.

In my experience, home office deduction is usually more hassle and trouble than it is worth. The IRS can be very difficult with this deduction.

Yes, but this often puts you at a higher % risk of being audited. You can also deduct electricity, ultility, phone, etc that you used for your home business.

You can deduct just the space used for the office–all other deductions are based on the % that space takes up out of the entire home…..
