Can someone enlighten me on the IRS rules for deductions with expenses related to working at home. We recently moved to NY because my DW is going to graduate school. My employer has let me work remotely from my new home in NY. Is anything deductible (i.e. computer equipment, rent, utilities, etc)?

I'm not even sure if I meet the qualifications for deductions as it was my choice to work remotely:

Anyone have any ideas or other publications I can look at?

Thanks.

working in sweats and a t-shirt is fun ... and hopefully tax deductible
