Claiming work-from-home expenses
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce and their member 'The Canadian Payroll Association' created a Q&A document that answers commonly asked questions about the simplified process for claiming working-space-in-the-home expenses on your 2020 tax return.
Some questions addressed include:
- What does this mean for payroll?
- What is considered a working day for the $2 per day calculation?
- What about situations where the employer did not require the to work from home, but allowed it upon request?
- Can an employer refuse to sign a T2200/T2200S form?
In addition, the Q&A provides guidance on common expenses and eligibility. For this information and more, download the Work Space in the Home Expenses Frequently Asked Questions.
