When I say every year, I mean since 1987, always for W-2'd jobs for which either my wife or I had no local office to go to. We even maintained separate phone and fax lines up until ~10 years ago. I have no doubt that these were legitimate deductions, but now I wonder about the past 2-3 years, even though TurboTax leads down the home office deduction path again and again.

Yes that was suspended back for 2018 returns. Deductions for job expenses have been suspended with the new tax act. See Deductions that have been suspended for 2018-2025
And see Turbo Tax FAQ on all the new 2018 changes
