Tax deductible question

1 Reply

I have an unfinished walk-in Attic and was wondering if i can use this part of the my house my home office also wanted to know if i finish the attic up by that i mean putting up dry wall and flooring etc.. are those material deductible as a start up cost in finishing my home office ?

Thanks in advance.

I am not a tax professional, but I am pretty sure that the only way you can claim a home office is if it is 100% dedicated to that use. If this room will be used for anything else you are not supposed to claim is after 2018. Your description sounds like it might qualify and hopefully a tax pro will step in and help you out. Preferably one located in your state.
