Hundreds of thousands of Canadian employees are working from home as a result of COVID19. Both the Canada Revenue Agency and Revenu Quebec have announced a temporary simplified method for claiming a deduction for work-from-home expenses for the 2020 tax year. This method will permit an employee to claim up to $400 without the need to maintain detailed receipts or obtain a signed employer declaration.
There may also be some instances where an employee could be entitled to a greater deduction based on documented receipts. This would require a signed declaration from the employer and a new T2200S form has been designed to validate the requirement for the employee to work from home as a result of the pandemic.
