If your employer required you to pay for certain work-related expenses out of your own pocket, they’ll provide you with a completed and signed T2200: Declaration of Conditions of Employment form. This form includes information about your duties, expenses, travel, commission, and if you were required to work from home for any amount of time.
The following work-related expenses are reported on this form:
- Travel expenses
- Motor vehicle expenses
- Expenses for office rent and/or work space in the home
- Salary expenses for employing an assistant
- Employment supplies
You’ll use the information found on your T2200 to help you complete your T777: Statement of Employment Expenses in H&R Block’s tax software. Be sure to keep your completed T2200 with your records in case the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) asks to see it at a later time.
As a rule, the CRA recommends that you keep supporting documents, like your T2200, for no less than 6 years after you file your return.
Note: If you’re a resident of Québec, your employer will provide you with a completed TP-64.3-V: General employment conditions form instead.
