my wife is a real estate agent. All her income is on 1099-MISC, and she made money after expenses in 2018. I want to deduct a portion of our home as her office When I enter it into TT it tells me it won't matter because my wife did not make any money in 2018. Help!
The home in office should go with her Schedule C.
