Hi

I'm Anne & I've been preparing taxes for 28 years. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Anne replied 2 months ago.

What type of business do you have? Do you regularly see clients at home?

Expert:  Anne replied 2 months ago.

Hi

You may include the home repairs, and maintenance, but not the lawn maintenance. Please see below:
