Thanks for the responses on the home office deduction...The HOD is not mandatory and may be skipped voluntarily or because the space no longer (or just in that year) qualifies for the HOD.

One other thought I just had: Does talking the home office deduction change my auto mileage calculations? I currently record and write off my milage between sites - if I travel from my W2 job to 1099 work I call that deductable milage. Travel from my final stop to home is commuting. If my office is in my home and I continue work at my home office is the mileage from last 1099 to home office deductable as well?
