Ed Zollars' Tax Update Podcast

Home is Not Where the Heart Is-Section 162(a)(2)

April 27, 2007

A taxpayer without a regular place of business can still obtain a deduction for travel away from home if the taxpayer can establish that he/she has a home.  In two cases (Jason Ayala v. Commissioner and Manuel Ayala, Jr. v. Commissioner) the taxpayers failed to show they had a home and lost the deduction.  But the IRS also failed in its attempt to assess a negligence penalty on these taxpayers.
