If you have an office in your home that is used strictly as a home office and nothing else, then yes, you can claim a home office deduction.

if I pay a rent and I have an office room in my apt and the apartment is two bedroom do I apply 50% of my expenses as office use expense on my 1040
Tax Professional: Kelly McGlynn, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 1 month ago

Not exactly. You would need to calculate the % of space used for the office so you would need to know the total square feet of the apartment and the total square feet of the office. That is the % of expenses that you are allowed to take. There is also a simplified method that is a flat rate but you still need to have the square footage.
