I have a self employed job that usually works under contract. I started a new job where I became an employee. Do I still claim expenses in my business section?

I'm a physiotherapy assistant and work under contract. Now during the year, I had started another physiotherapy assistant job where I became an employee. What happens when I claim expenses? Do I do it including the whole year or just before I started working as an employee? Will I still be able to claim expenses next year?

If you are an employee and your employer requires you to pay expenses to earn your employment income, you will need to fill out: T777 - Statement of Employment Expenses

If you are considered to be self-employed, any expenses incurred are claimed using this form:
Form T2125, Statement of Business or Professional Activities

If you require clarification on filling out these forms, you can contact the CRA using this phone number: 1-800-267-6999

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
