  1. My fiance and I both work at home for separate reasons. I am an employed at home worker, my offices takes up about 5% of my house. My fiance runs a self employed business at home, which takes up 10% of my house. So in total, 15% of our house is used for business purposes. How do I fill this out properly in my tax return? When I get to the question, "What % of your home is used for personal reasons", should I enter 85% and specify my deductions only account for 5% and my fiances 10%? Or do I enter 90% for my fiance and then 95% for myself?
  2. Need some help clarifying self employment expenses and deductions. 2017 was the first year that I was self employed (business run in my home). 1) What is the difference between entering my expenses in the T2125 Income expenses section vs Home office expenses. 2) Are fees payable to the government (taxes & QPIP) deducted automatically or do I need to enter this somewhere?
  3. Thanks for the response. Would installation of an air conditioner count as a maintenance expense in my case? It is used for personal use as well, but also for comfort of working at home. I have entered the percentages work/personal use already. Also can i claim my phone based on these percentages as well?
  4. Hi, I had a few questions regarding eligible deductions for a salaried worker for home office expenses. Maintenance fees - I had a new air conditioner installed in my condo, would this count as an eligible deduction? Cell phone fees- my work does require me to pay a cell phone, which is listed in my T2200- but this is also my personal line. Does it count as an eligible deduction?
