How do I apply Regular method instead of Simplified method for home office deductions? It seems to default to the simplified method even when I put info in the Regular method tab.

Hello there, valerie-a-nunez.

 

I'll share steps where you apply the home office deductions and choose either the Simplified or Regular method.

 

Here's how:

 

  1. In QuickBooks Self-Employed, go to the Taxes on the left panel.
  2. Click the Annual tab.
  3. Go to the Home office expenses ▼ section.
  4. Click Add a home office or Current home office if you already entered the square footage.
  5. Select a tax year.
  6. Click the Simplified method or Regular method tab.
  7. Enter your estimated home office square footage.
  8. Hit Save once done.

Here's a sample screenshot for a visual guide:
