home office expenses - shared?

Recommended Posts

husband and wife we co-own our house (with mortgage); we each use a part of house for two separate home businesses (one spouse full-time, other spouse part-time) ; in the home office expenses category, how do we handle the figures for our mortgage interest, for heating, insurance etc? do we each claim 100% of the cost? 50%, or some other percentage based on use?

-- this is the last question i have before being able to file -- Please Help...merci

Overtaxed has now indicated between you claiming 100% of expenses. Don't forget the step of breaking out the personal use before dividing the home office expense.   If you each have a separate office in the home, each claim like you are the only one but based only on your own office. If you share one office space, split the office expense between you.
