My tax tip for 2nd Qtr. 2015: Home Office deduction can apply if you use a part of your home regularly and exclusively for business: The Simplified Option: You can deduct $5 per square foot for a maximum of 300-square-feet for your home office. This equates to a $1,500 deduction. •The Regular Method: You can write-off a portion of your insurance and utility bills, as well as a percentage of your home depreciation or rent.
