Where do I enter the home office deduction for my business in TurboTax Home & Business CD/Download?

To enter your home office expense along with other common business expenses:

  1. Type “Schedule C” in the Search box. 
  2. Select the “Jump to” link. 
  3. If this is your first time entering info about your business, you’ll be asked some questions about your business. If you have already entered some info, click Edit next to your business.
  4. When you reach the Your (type of work) Business screen, scroll down to the Business Expenses section, then click Start next to Home Office Expense and follow the screens to enter your info.   
Remember to enter 1099-MISC, 1099-K, cash and personal check income from your self-employment before you associate any expenses with your business.  
If you’re not self-employed, but a W-2 employee instead, follow this link for the employee home office deduction.
