The office in the home expense of $3,400 is determined below: Real property taxes (20% × $3,900) $ 780 Interest on home mortgage (20% × $4,000) 800 Operating expenses on home (20% × $1,100) 220 Allocated depreciation on home 1,600 Total $3,400 Since Christine’s consulting business yields a profit of $7,600 [$16,000 (income) – $3,400 (office in the home) – $5,000 (related expenses)], all office in the home expenses are allowed. Because Christine is self-employed as to her consulting activity, the expenses are deductions for AGI, reported on Schedule C. The real property taxes and interest not claimed, $3,120 ($3,900 – $780) and $3,200 ($4,000 – $800), qualify as itemized deductions from AGI. b. Because they relate only to the office, such expenses are treated as direct expenses. Consequently, they are deductible in full and need not be apportioned between the business and personal use of the residence. The office in the home expense now becomes $6,400 ($3,400 + $3,000). c. Since the deduction for the current year cannot exceed the income from the business, any excess is carried over to future years. The excess to be carried over is $400 [$8,000 (income) – $3,400 (office in the home) – $5,000 (related expenses)]. Example 41
