It already is. I get a tax break for having a home office. They allow me to deduct a certain amount of my house payment as well as utilities. You are required to use a certain amount of square footage for your office in order for you to write it off.
I believe both of our employers also get tax deductions against what they contribute to our household expenses (technology, internet lines, cell phones & landlines, supplies, etc.).
I will never - ever - work in an office setting again if I can help it. I love my home office, and my husband loves his.
And yes, it should be incentivized. It keeps us both off the road during rush hour. And it has to be more energy efficient.
Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. ~W.C. Fields
