Should working from home be taxed? in Political Arena Posted November 12, 2020 12 hours ago, DaveTV1 said: It seems to me that if you work from home, that you should also be able to write off your mortgage payments as office rent. I would have to check into that. I know you can write off the mileage that if you use your car for business. It seems to me that you should also be able to do the same with your home. If you do that as office rent then they'll come after you with osha rules for your house probably.... and who knows what other agency will be checking in your house!
