Thank you for laying it all out. The tax code is incredibly difficult to navigate but you have laid it out in a way that I get.

I think there is one caveat-- the Jackson opinion was unpublished and therefore has no precedential value. While the 9th Circuit has expressed where it would go, it is not binding nor can it be cited as having precedent.

Howard,

Quick question and clarification needed.

You say "We keep track of all of our mileage and I have a spreadsheet that divides it up between business and personal. We deduct mileage when it's clearly appropriate (i.e. driving the Jeep to meet with one of our business partners), and we use the business percentage of our miles to deduct a portion of oil, gas, maintenance, and insurance on the Jeep (it would be on the truck if we didn't have the Jeep)."
Is that double dipping taking the standard mileage deduction and a
percentage of other qualified expenses? I thought it was one OR the other?

Enjoyed the write up, it does seem like they are intentionally disallowing what would otherwise be legitimate business deductions in a traditional "home".

Best regards,

Bill

Bill,
Yeah, I didn't state that very well. We keep records of both actual expenses and mileage and then plug in both to TurboTax which then determines the best of the two options for us.

Excellent and very well-written article, Howard!! Thank you for this invaluable information, that answered all of my concerns and questions.

Thanks Elizabeth. :)
