Friends with Tax Benefits: So You Work from Home?

Friends with Tax Benefits: So You Work from Home?

Read the Article


As many people across the country have adapted to working from home in the last couple years, it is not surprising that many people have piqued interest over how it might impact their tax situation. Afterall, when someone runs a business out of their home, they can often claim the expenses of office supplies and potentially a portion of their rent or mortgage. Given that many employees are working out of their own house, wouldn’t it be the same?

The answer is, probably not. As the Friends with Tax Benefits hosts explore, many expenses a person with a small business might be able to deduct are actually not deductible if you are on a W2 with your employer. However, they have found other financial benefits and illustrate how this new period of our lives has impacted their own habits and behaviors around money.

Listen in to find out how Lauren saved on her car insurance, which habits Daniel expects to continue or stop as life returns back to normal, and the must-know advice Kat has for those who have chosen to pursue a digital nomad lifestyle in the last couple years.
