If you claiming a home office deduction on 2106 do not put mortgage interest expense in it since you can always claim mortgage on schedule A. Don't put mortgage interest expense subject to 2% limitation when you can claim it all. With a schedule C it's a different case.

It seems that the ProSeries program has addressed this situation. I just check one of my clients return. and the Mortgage interest and R/E taxes were transfered from the 2106 home office page to the Schedule A. the whole amount, not prorated.

But deducting it on Sch C lower the self-employment tax right? Sch A deduction does not lower self-employment tax. Just my opinion.

The only problem with Schedule C is that we are taking about a home office deduction on 2106 Unreimbused Employee Expenses which does not involve S/E tax.
