Where to take Home Office Deduction for Partnership

I am a member of an LLC taxed as a partnership. My home
office qualifies as a deduction.

Where would this deduction be claimed? Is it on the Form
1065 filed by the LLC? Or is it on my personal form 1040? If
the latter, where do I claim it? The K-1 income goes to
Schedule E but I do not see how to take a home office
deduction there.

Thanks in advance...

Employees deduct business use of home expense on Form 8829
and Schedule A, subject to the 2% AGI limitation.

General partner's unreimbursed expenses are deducted on Sch.
E, line 28, on the next line following the net income/loss
amount. Use Form 8829 (IRS Publication 587) to arrive at
the result to enter on Sch. E. Also, Form 2106 may apply to
your situation, to claim deductions for vehicle, travel,
transportation, meals, or entertainment expense.

IRS GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR FORM 8829:

Note: If you are claiming expenses for business use of your
home as an employee or a partner, or you are claiming these
expenses on Schedule F (Form 1040), do not use Form 8829.
Instead complete the worksheet in Pub 587, Business Use Of
Your Home (includes use by Daycare Providers)

Last year my accountant asked me to itemize these expenses
and he took them on Form 1065, treated as a loan from me to
the partnership. This year I did some more research and I
wonder if that is the proper approach...

To correct my errors:

>> Employees deduct business use of home expense on Form 8829
>> and Schedule A, subject to the 2% AGI limitation.


I was wrong. Employees use the worksheet and Form 2106, not
Form 8829.

>> General partner's unreimbursed expenses are deducted on Sch.
>> E, line 28, on the next line following the net income/loss
>> amount.


This is correct.

>> Use Form 8829 (IRS Publication 587) to arrive at
>> the result to enter on Sch. E.


No, use the worksheet on p. 24 of Pub 587 to arrive at the
result. You will find they are very similar, but the
worksheet is proper.

Thank you Milt Baker, CPA for correcting me.

Depending on some other issues, like who else was involved
in the partnership, I have done this - HOWEVER, I would not
treat it as a loan, but rather as a contribution of capital
to the partnership.
