Form T is provided by your employer and allows you to claim expenses you incur to do your job, such as your home office and car.
In the world of expense deduction, the self-employed and business owners have a veritable buffet of deductible expenses at their disposal; salaried employees are more limited and must get a T if they want to deduct certain expenses. Unlike, say, T4s, Ts will only be provided to you, the employee. The CRA will receive no copy of it. Unlike the T, the CRA actually requires you to send them a completed copy of this form.
How important are Ts? The most basic but important one indicates whether the employee is allowed to claim anything. Other questions ask whether the employee must travel to places other than the office as part of her job. Does the employee need to rent an office? Have a car? A business cell phone? Use part of their home as an office? Need to own a power saw? Anything to be careful about? Item 9 on the T asks if the employer has reimbursed the employee for any expenses and how much.
Claiming reimbursed expenses as a deduction is a particularly effective way to get in a heap of trouble with the CRA. What expenses will the T allow me to deduct? Have a look at the T to get the full picture. The big ones that most T filers will be concerned with are automobile expenses, work-related entertaining, and office rent or a portion of your total home expenses if you work from home regularly.
T2200 Declaration of Conditions of Employment
A T Declaration of Conditions of Employment is a form that allows certain employees to deduct specific expenses that are incurred for the purpose of earning employment income. Generally, the Canada Revenue Agency CRA does not allow employees to claim deductions from their employment related expenses. Most employees cannot claim employment expenses, which means that taxpayers are unable to deduct expenses such as the cost of travel to and from work, or other the purchase of most tools and clothing. Although, there are a variety of employment arrangements that allow for employees to deduct employment costs. However, in order to be able to claim employment expenses, a T Declaration of Conditions of Employment must be completed by your employer. However, this can only be done if your employment contract required you to pay the expenses and you did not receive an allowance for them, or the allowance received was included in your income.
