Is my subcontracting business home-based?

I am currently a subcontractor for several mystery shop services, a promotional modeling company, and this summer, for the government. The tax forms they have me fill out are strange. Am I a home-based business? How do I know? I don't have an office, but I don't need one. This is all new to me.

Since the only "headquarters" you have for your operations is your residence, I suppose it could be considered a "home based business." Do they give you other choices? You're right though, two people would probably give two different answers.
