Hope this isn't too silly of a question, I'm just trying to cover all my bases.

My question is regarding my home office. Last year I did some contract work from my home (I own) so I set up a home office. I do internet based work, with 100% of my work being done in my home office. I bought a PC and software specifically for this work. All client meetings are done in my home also. My (very small) office takes up about 100 sqft of my home. Is this deductible? I've gone through the steps with Turbo Tax and have also read through Schedule C instructions and I *think* it is. Like I said above, just covering my bases.

Thanks in advance,
