Mr. H. N. Smith
I'm curious as to WHY all your friends do! What does that mean? Why didn't you just ask them? Oh wait,
that's not a good idea! Actually that is a question that needs to be ask and answered by your CPA or tax professional!
Often you will find that you are allowed various deductions if you have a business in your home - so good luck with that! Seriously...all my friends do! I'm still SMH over that!
