I have been working at home (telecommuting, but I work for GTE) for the last year and a half and I am considering revising my 1998 tax return to deduct the use of my home for work. I will also do this for 1999 but I will only be working at home from Jan - Aug. I am changing jobs at the end of Aug.My question is: What can I safely deduct?My home office is 90 sq ft, which represents 6.6% percent of my home. I can confidently say that this office area is only used for work purposes.This is the list of deductions I think I can deduct, please add or subtract from this list: (PS> These are things I pay for myself)6.6% of my mortgage (priciple only since the interest is already deducted)6.6% of my utility bills (Gas, Electric, Water??)6.6% of my Home Insurance??Anything else? Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks,P.
