Update on home office expense deductions and form T2200

The CRA has updated their main home office expense deduction page with the following message:

“For the 2021 and 2022 tax years, employees working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be able to claim up to a maximum of $500 using the temporary flat rate method, to calculate their home office expenses as announced in the Fall Economic Statement by the Government of Canada. Web content and forms are currently being updated to reflect this change.”

As many employers offered flexible working arrangements during 2021 as pandemic restrictions were lifted, we have asked the CRA to provide guidance on how these arrangements will be dealt with as they update their resources. 

We will provide updates as more information becomes available.
