If you have a loss, you’re not done yet. You have to go through some additional steps in this section before transferring that loss to your 1040, because it may not be fully-deductible.

How much space do you have? Will it for expansion as you add clients and equipment? I started with what I thought was ample space, but after adding a second printer, scanner, fax machine, and more file drawers, it was a bit of a gauntlet. To make it trickier, every time I added a piece of equipment, it displaced one of my husband’s possessions. One time he even lost his entire dresser to my impromptu expansion.
If you’re working from home, you may not want clients to know it. Since the legal address for your corporation is made part of the public record, you may want business and legal notices to be delivered someplace other than your home. For an LLC or S-corporation, a registered agent’s address is substituted for yours for purpose of public notices. Additionally, says Akalp, if you’re not incorporating, you can get a P.O. Box or use a mailing company for a DBA entity.
Of course, I appreciate your response to my grousing and since I’m in my 2nd half of life, I know fully well that any new endeavor requires patience.
