Amounts entered as in the Direct Expense Column will take the full amount as a deduction, Direct Expense should be amounts attributable only to the Home Office.
Amounts entered as an Indirect Expense will affect the entire home and only a percentage of the Indirect Expense will be deducted for the Home Office (allocated between business use and personal use based on the business use percentage).
The government instructions for Form 8829 state: " Use Form 8829 to figure the allowable expenses for business use of your home on Schedule C (Form 1040)..." The instructions also specifically state that any expenses related to the business use of your home for partners or that are related to a Schedule F should be computed using Publication 587.
Since the government instructions indicate the 8829 can only be linked to the Schedule C, ProSeries does not link the 8829 to a different Form or Schedule.
