Where do I enter my home office expenses? I am not self employed but I work from home for my employer? Using Deluxe and asking for separate business 1099, which is NA

If you itemize deductions (Schedule A), you may claim the home office expenses you incurred for your W-2 income if you worked at home for the convenience of your employer. These expenses aren't fully deductible as they are subject to the 2% rule.


To enter your home office expenses (for work as an employee):

  • Continue working on your return in TurboTax Online. (If your return isn't open, you'll need to sign in and click Take me to my return.)
  • Click Tax Tools (lower left side of your screen).
  • Select Tools.
  • In the pop-up window, select Topic Search.
  • In the I'm looking for: box, type 2106.
  • In the results box, highlight 2106, then click GO.
  • You'll land on the page that says Tell us about the occupation you have expenses for. Enter your occupation and click Continue
  • Continue to answer the questions in this section. Select Yes and click Continue when asked, Do you have home office expenses?
  • Provide information about your office as prompted (a name for the office, location, square footage, expenses, etc.) and follow the onscreen instructions to the conclusion. TurboTax will display a message indicating the amount of your home office deduction. (Click the screenshot below for reference.)


Note: If using the TurboTax CD/Download software, you'll use the Find function and the "Jump to" link (instead of "Tax Tools") to search for the topic.
