If I have a rental property that is separate from my residence, can I claim work-space-in-the-home expenses? .

Form T776 Statement of Real Estate Rentals does not have work-space-in-the-home in the list of expenses, nor can I find it anywhere on the CRA website. Everything that I have found allowing a person to claim the home expenses has to do with business income but mine is classed as non-business rental income.

The answer is no, you can not claim work space in the home for rental.

Thank you so much for the quick answer! Is this from your personal experience? Is there a specific reference on the CRA website or in the Income Tax Act that disallows the expense?
