Yes. You can complete form 8829, part III and bill the S Corp for 1/12 of the depreciation amount each month. You must have a letter form the S Corp stating that the home office is for the convenience of the employer. In addition, you can be reimbursed for auto related expenses.

This reply leaves questions. My question is how is he being reimbursed?" Is it with money, shouldn't he report the income as "other income". If he is not being reimbursed with money then he can take the deductions for Business use of a Home Office.
