  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) January 21, 2021 - Michael H. Karu, CPA/CFF, Senior Member, Levine, Jacobs & Company, LLC., was highlighted on NJMoneyHelp.com where he answered the question: “Since the pandemic started, I have worked at home instead of going into my office. I am not reimbursed by my employer. I set aside a small area in my living room where I have a desk, a table and a computer. Am I entitled to a home office deduction for this?”

    “Home office expenses are only allowable if you have a business operating from your home,” Karu stated. “As an employee, no deduction is allowed.”

    According to the Tax Cuts and Job Act, Karu explains, “miscellaneous itemized deductions were virtually eliminated.” He further elaborates, “Employee business expenses were in that category.”
