    Bourbon and Business | Business Tax Deductions Part 2

    Bourbon and Business | Business Tax Deductions Part 2

    00;00;14;09 [Jason]: Jason Watson with WCG Incorporated here in Colorado
    Springs, we're a local tax and accounting firm. Joined by Rachael
    Weber and Joseph Bassett, both tax professionals for us. We're
    also hosted by Axe and the Oak here in Colorado Springs, they've
    been gracious enough to open up early for us, part of our Bourbon
    and Business
    00;00;31;29 series, podcasts and videos. We just got done wrapping up a video
    and podcast on some of the bigger deductions that we see, cars,
    that's always a big one for most small
    00;00;42;29 business owners, meals and travel. We're going to talk this time or,
    this time around about home office and then all the other like
    goofier ones, if you will.
    00;00;54;25 So, you know, tell me the rules, Rachael, on the home office
    deduction.
    00;01;00;04 [Rachael]: It's got to be used regularly and exclusively
    00;01;03;27 [Jason]: Okay.
    00;01;04;26 [Rachael]: In your home.
    00;01;05;13 [Jason]: Okay, regular and exclusive and have a business.
    00;01;09;01 [Rachael]: A Business purpose.
    00;01;09;14 [Jason]: That's probably true for every deduction on a plan, right?
    00;01;12;18 [Rachael]: Yeah.
    00;01;12;27 [Jason]: For a business deduction to be a legitimate business
    deduction it has to have a business purpose. So, use regularly and
    exclusively. So, can you break those words down for me? What's
    "regular" mean?
    00;01;23;15 [Rachael]: "Regular" means you would be checking your emails,
    invoicing your customers, doing administrative work. Okay. Meeting
    with clients, holding your inventory. It could mean a whole host of
    00;01;37;27 [Jason]: Right.
    00;01;38;03 [Rachael]: of things. You're just doing that on a regular basis, not
    once a month
    00;01;42;26 [Jason]: Right.
    00;01;43;14 [Rachael]: but on a regular basis.
    00;01;44;21 [Jason]: Yeah. And one of the words that the IRS will also use too is
    "continuous", right? This is regular and continuous, it's, it's, got a
    life, you know, it's got a cycle.
    00;01;53;28 [Jason]: So yeah, absolutely, regular is a big deal. We have folks
    that have a rental, one rental, you know, they have a W-2 job, they
    have all those things and they're trying to say, I have a home office
    to manage my rental. It's just never going to happen. Now, if we
    have 10 rentals, 6 rentals, that's all you do is manage your
    00;02;11;02 rentals. We have some people that have 3 or 4 VRBOs or Airbnb,
    short term rentals and that is all they do.
    00;02;18;24 [Rachael]: Time consuming.
    00;02;18;29 [Jason]: Their working that stuff 100% so yeah, so that's regular.
    How about exclusive Joe? Joseph? What's exclusive?
    00;02;24;27 [Joseph]: So, let's say you have an extra room in the bedroom
    that's you want to use for your home office and it also can't be your
    theater room. So you know, that's gotta be exclusively used for
    business.
    00;02;33;20 [Jason]: What if you're a videographer and the theater is your
    business? I'm teasing you.
    00;02;38;03 [Joseph]: Well, you have an argument there. Or, or
    00;02;38;24 [Jason]: No, but you can't mix the use, yeah
    00;02;41;07 [Joseph]: Right, unless you run a daycare out of your
    00;02;42;13 [Jason]: Right.
    00;02;42;21 [Joseph]: House as well.
    00;02;43;05 [Jason]: Yeah, and daycare has its own special rules and this is not
    the podcast for that because
    00;02;47;27 [Joseph]: Right.
    00;02;48;01 [Jason]: I don't know those rules by a memory. I look them up once
    in awhile when I have to, but that's it. But right, those are some of
    the shared use stuff can be daycare. Other than that, it's regular
    and exclusive with a business purpose. So, tell me some of the
    bank, the benefits of having a home office
    00;03;05;25 deduction or home office reimbursement.
    00;03;08;10 [Rachael]: Reimbursement? Is that part of your mortgage interest?
    00;03;13;15 [Jason]: Okay.
    00;03;13;23 [Rachael]: Your real estate taxes,
    00;03;15;05 [Jason]: Okay.
    00;03;15;19 [Rachael]: Utilities.
    00;03;16;21 [Jason]
