Now, let’s say you work from home and think you’re eligible for a deduction? Think again. The home office deduction does not apply unless you are self-employed and use part of your home exclusively for business purposes.

Maintaining a clear distinction can greatly improve your chances of claiming the home office deduction – some food for thought!

You’re a landlord and wondering about the qualified business income (QBI) deduction? Confused? The IRS guidelines or a tax expert, might just be your savior. But remember to not just meet but exceed the standards to truly reap the benefits!
