2022 Home Administrative Office Details
Business owners who work primarily from a home office may still have several other business locations outside of the home.
If the business owner’s home office qualifies as their primary office, the home office mileage deduction allows mileage driven for business purposes to be deducted, from the moment the business owner leaves home, even if that person is driving to another of the business’s locations.
If the home office is not the principal place of business, the cost of home to work mileage to the first business location of the day and from the last business location of the day back to home is not deductible.
