I originally posted this to the lawn forum, on second thought this is probably where it belongs.

A friend of mine who just completed her taxes courses to be a Tax Preparer (NOT accountant, just preparer) told me that since I incorporated this year that I cannot take my home office/garage deduction. I have heard this about C Corps but is this true under S Corp as well?

Check with a CPA.

We're an S corp, but I'll be honest. I don't recall what happens in the first year. But I haven't been taking more than a standard deduction. The benefit for now isn't worth the huge increase in the chance that I'll be audited.

the way you take a deduction as s corp is by writting a check for rent to yourself. if you are using a room or garage for buz use only .thatis better then any other way. the $ amount is an expense.
