You can deduct the flowers you buy for your office.

Indeed, flowers and plants you buy to decorate your office are 100% deductible🌹, even if you work from home. It’s good news for florists across the country.

Nevertheless, be careful about dates: buying flowers on Valentine’s or Mothers’ Day will likely lead to the requalification of the expense as “personal expense” in case of a tax audit. As a consequence, you will lose the benefits of the expense on your taxes, and will likely the auditor…more cautious. Be smart.

To that effect, we would definitely recommend purchasing flowers regularly to maximize the deduction. Think of those subscription services that deliver flowers to your office every week or every month.

Go further and start thinking about your home office setup

Flowers and decorative plants are only one example of the expenses you can deduct for your home office. Think about your desk, your chair, your screen, your keyboard (and all the technology surrounding you). Don’t forget the lightning (always expensive), and a part of your water, gas, and electricity bills, as well as a part of your mortgage interests.
