    Trudeau needs us working people to pay more taxes, not less.

    My guess would be T2200 goes away if anything. Someone has to pay for the summer CERB holidays half the country took this year.
    That's my guess too and probably reason employers are hesitant to give this out until closer to filing deadline.

    All the pre-COVID WFH people are going to be pissed if T2200 is gone.

    I'm still not clear why employers are so hesitant about issuing that for those of you who are employees? Does it fuck them in some way to have their employees claim it? Why so much push back?

    Many employers can barely issue pay stubs. Anything like this feels beyond thier capabilities.

    The thoughts my wife has is that if a employer issues a T2200 to its employees then they cant claim the same kind of write off for their own businesses.

    There certainly are tax implications on corporate side for this. I think companies are trying to understand their own tax/risk implications associated with it.

    And what exactly are the tax implications to an employer for issuing a T2200?

    It's my understanding that there has been recent cases where employees have been allowed to deduct T2200 expenses without a form when the employer unreasonably withheld sign-off or simply did not respond to the request.

    From a liability perspective I wouldn't sign one for someone if asked too as I believe if it was misrepresented you can receive anywhere from a small fine to 50% of the understated taxes owing.

    I have a funny story about that, but it's not for internet posting.

    Possibly not for the employer. The confusion around the T2200 is if the employee was required to work from home, or were they just permitted. If they were not explicitly required the form cannot be given.

    Then, if any employer provided equipment for use in the home, it comes to the question if that is a taxable benefit if it was not explicitly required. A few of the larger accounting firms have released some advice on this exact situation.

    Care to share that advice if its available to the public? I'm incorporated so it doesn't apply to me but when my wife goes back from mat leave it will definitely apply to her.

    That's one example from Deloitte. They got into just enough detail on it to get an idea of potential pitfalls. Then, of course, contact us to help you sort it out.

    All of the information is available from the Canada Revenue Agency, a little harder to find on your own. You can also contact the CRA to ask any questions if something is not clear. I have done that several times in the past, they can be quite helpful at times. This was several years ago though.
