Are you working remotely? Learn more about the employment expenses you can deduct.

If you incurred expenses because of COVID-19-related teleworking in 2020, you may be entitled to claim some of them as a deduction in your income tax return.  

To help you, we created a new simplified form that also harmonizes our approach with that of the Canada Revenue Agency.   

You must complete form TP-59.S-V, Expenses Related to Working Remotely Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and use one of the following methods to calculate your teleworking expenses:

  • the temporary fixed rate method (if you use this method, you do not need to receive form TP-64.3-V, General Employment Conditions, from your employer and you do not need to keep supporting documents);
  • the detailed method (if you use this method, you must receive form TP-64.3-V from your employer and you must keep your supporting documents).

To determine the best method for you and learn more about certain teleworking-related employment expenses, see COVID-19: FAQ for Individuals. The section includes a link to a tool to help you choose a method (available soon), examples of situations, and allowed or disallowed expenses as well as a list of the conditions for claiming the deduction.

Fair. For all.

One vision. Concrete actions.
