As per CRA, you can deduct your motor vehicle expenses if you meet all of the following conditions:
- You were normally required to work away from your employer's place of business or in different places.
- Under your contract of employment, you had to pay your own motor vehicle expenses. You are not considered to have paid your own motor vehicle expenses if your employer reimburses you or you refuse a reimbursement or reasonable allowance from your employer.
- You did not receive a non-taxable allowance for motor vehicle expenses. Generally, an allowance is non-taxable when it is based solely on a reasonable per-kilometre rate.
- You keep with your records a copy of Form T2200, Declaration of Conditions of Employment, which has been completed and signed by your employer.
If you have received a non-taxable motor vehicle allowance and can show that the employment-related motor vehicle expenses are in excess of the allowance and voluntarily include the amount of the allowance in income, you can deduct your motor vehicle expenses if conditions 1, 2, and 4 are met.
