As a hair stylist, can I deduct both chair rental and home office expenses for tax purposes?

Asked by: ubinas 566 views YA Discussion

In renting a chair at a salon, I can deduct my rent but can I also deduct home office expenses too, if I do most of my administrative work from home. Does the IRS allow this?

How others found here:

  • rent of a salon chair for tax purposes

    The home office would NOT be a deduction since you do not conduct business there and do not meet clients there. If the salon chair was IN the “home office” THEN you would be able to deduct that.

    Go to IRS.GOV and download the free instructions for Sch C and check out the criteria. You can deduct both items as you cut hair at your rental chair and do all the admin work and records keeping in a home office. Many self employed people are doing the scuzz work records keeping and number crunching stuff at three in the morning in a home office; their time at physical work location is devoted to work. When we all finally say “take this occupation and shovel it” then the drones living the good life off our sweat and labor are going to be in a world of hurt.

    use of space at home for your business has to be exclusive to the business, nothing of a personal nature
    ie if you are using the kitchen table to do your bookwork, not a chance
    or even your family desk, not exclusive
