14. I worked from home last year, do I claim Simplified or Detailed?
A) If you were working from home and it was not due to the pandemic, you will have to claim Detailed and you will need a signed T2200 from your employer to do so.
B) If you were working from home due to the pandemic you have a choice between the two. Rule of thumb is that if you paid rent, it is better to claim detailed and if you weren't, then simplified. Please find more information about this on our links page. You can read about how to claim and what to claim there. If you are claiming detailed, please email to request a form to fill out.
15. I paid rent or property tax, how do I claim this on my taxes? Do I get a refund for this expense?
Great Question! The simple answer is that these expenses do not affect your tax return/refund in any way unless you are claiming business or employment expenses. They affect something called the Trillium Benefit, and the general rule is that if your income is under $45,000 for the year you should qualify. Please visit our links page to find out more information about the Trillium Benefit as well as other Family Benefits.
