I'm a copywriter at an ad agency. In addition to my full-time job, I freelance write for other clients. A couple of years ago I made 10k in freelance and had several deductions including home office, mileage, etc.

Last year I only made $250.00 freelancing. Can I still deduct anything? I'm in a panic because my husband and I are going to owe $4000 if I don't find a way to deduct something. We rent, combined we made 65k, and my husband accidentally (his version of the story) claimed 2 dependents. I claimed 0.

$4000 is more than we've been able to save for a house in 2 years. Any help would be very appreciated.

Thank you - Miss Leah
