if you get a w-2  there is no deduction.  if you are self emplyed, that portion of the home would have to be used exclusively for business.    post back if you need more info

If I worked from home last year some times can I claim the deduction

Are you referring to the home office deduction? If so, you cannot take this deduction if you were a W-2 employee. 

 

If you were self-employed, you can take the home office deduction as long as the office area was used regularly and exclusively for the business activity. 

 

Here’s how to make these entries:

 

@cjuhl78

  1. Under Income & Expenses (tab at the top of your screen), click Review next to Self-employment income and expenses (this assumes that you have already entered your self-employed income).
    1. Click Review again next to the specific self-employed activity and scroll down to the Expenses category.
    2. Click Review/Start/Edit next to Home office.
