Home Office – Deduct Your Security System

You can take a depreciation allowance for the installation of a home security system if your main place of business is your home. Additionally you can deduct maintenance and monitoring expenses.  The deduction percentage is the same as utilities and a homeowners’ insurance policy, it is based on the business percentage of your home.  Note that aggressively taking the deduction for the full cost is generally not accepted by the IRS.
