Writing Off House Cleaning?
Can you write off house cleaning or housekeeping services for your home office?
Yes you can!
If you have a home office that you use for business and, periodically, meeting with clients, you might be able to write off house cleaning services.
When working out of a home office, one of the toughest things about your work situation is that family and work commingle in this confusing and sometimes frustrating quagmire. You can work better when your house is freshly cleaned, and turning off that self-employed switch can be much easier when the house is sparkling.
When working out of a home office, one of the toughest things about your work situation is that family and work commingle in this confusing and sometimes frustrating quagmire.
Have you ever considered that house cleaning can help your home-based business? Neither did we until a client of ours went to his accountant and informed them that he would have more meetings at home if the house was clean.
Just remember that you’ll only be able to write off the percentage of cleaning that was for the home office and doing business.
So if you’re a home based business working out of a home office, then we’d love to clean your house and help you feel great about the place that you both live and work. We will even help you to have more margin in your life as well.
