Note: CRA allows all employees who worked from home during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to claim up to $400 in employment expenses at a flat rate. This amount is a tax deduction and not a credit, which means you deduct it from your income to reduce your tax liability but will not result in a refund.
