Maybe. The law generally allows you: the law allows someone to use their home or apartment address as a business address. However, you need to check your lease (if you are renters); the HOA, condo, or Co-op association agreements and rules (if you own); and the zoning rules--any or all of those can prohibit basing or even registering a business (or your particular type of business) at home.
