Default Start-up costs

It's not uncommon for a new provider to have more expenses than income. You want to still claim it all for two reasons. One - the law requires you to claim any deductions you are entitled to. Two - it will benefit you to claim them.

If you claim everything and report a loss, the loss gets put on your Form 1040 and will reduce any other income from your family (spouse). Your house expenses on Form 8829 can't create a loss, but you can roll over these expenses to the next year. Thus, you can reduce income in 2011.
