I am a sole Proprietorship in California. Where can I find a list of acceptable or not acceptable business expenses I am allowed to deduct from my income. Do I need to reimburse myself in anyway before reporting expenses?

  • This is a question to ask your accountant. Beware of course that you may need to declare some of these 'business' usages to various providers if you wish to claim the tax benefits, and this in turn may raise the prices beyond the anticipated savings. – Nick Stevens 8 years ago

It's called the "Home Office Deduction." It's based on the percentage of square footage in your home that you use exclusively for business. Use IRS Form 8829 to claim it, or let your tax accountant plug in the numbers for you when she does your return; her tax software will make the calculations and generate the necessary paperwork automatically.
