Dear fellow Fools,

I have a regular full time job. I did some project recently for no-name start up and made $2000. I am currently renting and use my basement as my home office. The question is can I write off part of the rent paid on my house as an office expense. Also, if there are other expenses that is related to getting this moonlighting project done, can I write them off also ?

Any thoughts ?
