which turbotax do i need to make sure my home office expenses are captured. I am employed but use space in my home for my company and have a T2200 form completed

Answer

The Self-Employment version of the software would be best in this scenario. Expert guidance on reporting self-employment income and expenses, including businesses on the side and home-based businesses. As well as any T4s you may need to enter.

Once you have completed the Profile section of your return. The Self-Employment section under the Income tab which allows you to calculate in-home use for business as well as enter in allowable expenses provided on your T2200 from your employer. As for your T4, same section but under Tslips instead.

Download version (up to 12 returns): https://turbotax.intuit.ca/business-tax-software/home-business.jsp

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.
