Going on the assumption that you are either now a home business owner or you are considering the possibility, the governmentloves you and wants to put money in your pocket. One of thebiggest advantages of running your own home business is the taxadvantages the government has put in place for you.

Consider this…

Let's say you were in the market to expand the size of yourhome. Based on your budget, you know you can afford a home thatwill cost you about $1,500 per month. Since you are a home business entrepreneur, you can add to what you are going to payfor office space, say $500 per month, to what you can afford topay for a home. Since you have your office in your home, you canallocate that money to expand what you could otherwise affordand get a larger home for you and your family and to accommodateyour home business. Putting that money into your mortgage is alot better than throwing it away paying a lease for officespace. Not to mention, a very healthy tax deduction is in orderfor you because your business is based out of your home.Additionally, a percentage of the expenses it takes to run thehome are tax advantages for you too like mortgage interest,insurance, taxes, utilities and more!
