Financial Issues of Telecommuting FAQ
I am being relocated by my company to a new region away from the headquarters office and will be working out of my new apartment. Should I be able to get reimbursed by the company for the square footage of my home office?

It's unlikely you will be able to collect "rent" from your company. There's no rule or policy about this in general; it's a matter of how each company treats it, but companies in general aren't paying that kind of rent. In theory, and usually in fact, the telecommuter working at home like this saves a considerable amount in expenses (gas, office clothing, etc.) which offsets the home cost. And the reality is, you aren't laying out any extra money for your apartment; you would have had that expense anyhow.
