Read It and Weep

Advantages of working in a home office:

  • Great corner office with windows.
  • Not contending with anyone with climate control.
  • Fridge is right down the hall.
  • Bathroom is even closer.
  • I don't need to use headphones for anything.
  • Nobody looking at your monitor as they walk past.
  • The commute saves gas.
  • Can run out and do chores at lunch. Or, whenever it strikes you.
  • Don't have to share the Internet connection with 200 other people.
  • Or the printer.
  • Boss is a real jerk but stays out of my hair for the most part.
There are probably more coming, this is just off the top of my head.

I have actually decided to forego the tax writeoff for the square footage of my work area because a) I've read that it serves as an invitation for the IRS to audit you and b) although I've registered an LLC I'm skittish about the liability factor -- if I provide a service that ends up costing a company a bunch of money and they sue me for it, will my personal property be safe?

Don't forget not having to worry about offending sensitive co-workers with your strict adherence to No Pants Fridays.
