Tax Deduction-Working from home

If you have been asked by your employer due to COVID-19 to work from home you may qualify for a tax deduction for some of your expenses. Keep all your home expense receipts such as:

  • Accounting fees
  • Office supplies
  • Electricity, heat and water
  • Maintenance
  • Insurance (commission employees)
  • Property taxes (commission employees)

Your employer must sign a declaration form T2200 stating you were required to work from home. And you must have a designated work space used only for work.
