No, that is incorrect.
To deduct the cost of a home office, the office must be used regularly and exclusively as either the taxpayer's principal place of business or as a place for meeting customers or clients. Employees can only deduct home office expenses if the use of the office is "for the convenience of the employer." In most cases, employee use of a home office is for the employee's convenience, not the employerâ€™s. Therefore, situations in which an employee can deduct home office costs are relatively rare.
