Items that cost more than $100 and are being depreciated should be entered on Form 4562 and then transferred to Schedule C, line 13.
When entering expenses directly onto Schedule C (supplies, toys, etc.) that you are using for both business and personal purposes, calculate the business deduction by multiplying the cost of each item by your time-space % and put the result on Schedule C. Your time-space % is calculated on Form 8829.
When entering house expenses onto Form 8829, put them in column b (indirect) because they will then be multiplied by your time-space %.
