by Linda L. Heineman, CPA I must confess, I love my home office. Over the years I have continued to fine-tune how my office works so I can stay home as long as possible.There are some great benefits to a home office. First, it's economical - no rent, no landlord. And, living in a traffic-clogged city like Los Angeles, it's wonderful not having to face a daily commute. You can work whenever you want. That flexibility is another reason why having a home office is so attractive.
