T2200S -- Working from Home Deductions

As a result of COVID-19 pandemic, some employees have temporarily shifted to a "work from home" environment at the request or permission of the University and may be considering whether to deduct certain home office expenses for work spaces and home office supplies on 2020 personal income tax returns.

The University is issuing a T2200S form for all employees who received employment income from Western and were required by the University, either through written or verbal communication, to work from home in 2020.
