IRS Plans Simplified Option for Claiming Home Office Deduction Starting 2013
On January 15, 2013, the Internal Revenue Service announced a simplified option that many owners of home-based businesses and some home-based workers may use to figure their deductions for the business use of their homes.
The new optional deduction, capped at $1,500 per year based on $5 a square foot for up to 300 square feet, will reduce the paperwork and recordkeeping burden on small businesses by an estimated 1.6 million hours annually.
The new option provides eligible taxpayers an easier path to claiming the home office deduction. Taxpayers claiming the optional deduction will complete a significantly simplified form. However, homowners using the new option cannot depreciate the portion of their home used in a trade or business.
The new simplified option is available starting with the 2013 return most taxpayers file early in
