The tax benefit will be minimal.Poll really needs a 'for now' option because we're busy right now on stuff booked pre-COVID but there's nothing new coming in and the current work starts drying up quick starting in Q4, plus the PPP money goes away soon as well. But I've been 95% work from home other than a couple weeks of furlough in May. Management has told us WFH will continue at least to the end of the year. I think long term working from home half time would be great but I feel like the importance of being face to face in meetings and being able to chat with people in hallways or at the water cooler is becoming more and more apparent (same reason I don't think Zoom is going to replace a lot of business travel post COVID, there's value in being there)
Im going to have to figure out the tax benefits I can get from being required to have my own home office.
Both wife and I have been home since mid-March. Having the little guy home for about 8 weeks was awesome and horrible at the same time. A 6 month old between us lead to working 11+ hours to get 8 hours of work done. Her job is a lot of R&D so she could legitimately try to keep little man happy while watching webinars...not quite as easy as a CPA with deliverables.
Our administrative staff is in the office but virtually everyone else is WFH.
I don't dislike WFH but do miss the social aspects of being in the office. WFH certainly makes a quick afternoon round of golf easier though.
