Can home insurance be written off as a business expense since I work from home full-time?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Shannon on April 2, 2021

Is deducting home insurance an option for me as a remote worker? I'm looking for any edge and cost savings I can get.

Great question! Tax law changes frequently and can vary by state, so it is best to check with your tax advisor or the IRS. It will depend on whether you are self-employed, an employee, or some combination of both. This may also depend on what percentage of your home is used for your business.

In any case, if you run a business from your home, review your policy and check with your insurance agent to ensure that you are appropriately covered. Most policies provide a small amount of coverage for certain types of businesses. You may be able to obtain more coverage by purchasing an endorsement, or you may need a separate businessowners policy.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
