2nd home used solely for business use
I have a 2nd home in another state where I am not a resident. In 2016 I used the property as a home solely when traveling on business (on behalf of my sole-proprietor LLC). Basically I used a furnished property I owned in lieu of a hotel.
Can I deduct the market rent for my 2nd home on schedule C as a travel expense?
The travel was mandated by a client contract and I spent approximately 1/3 of 2016 living/working out of my 2nd home. In 2015 the property was rented full-time as an investment property.
