I am a salaried employee working remotely. I am considering getting a membership in a coworking space as my home situation is not really suitable for setting up a home office. Logically, I would like to think that such an expense would be tax deductible as the coworking space would be used exclusively for work purpose.
My contract stipulates that I am working from home and my employer is filling T2200 with a Yes answer to this question:
“Did this employee’s contract require them to pay their own expenses while carrying out the duties
However, they are answering No to this one:
“Did this employee’s contract of employment require them to:
• rent an office away from your place of business?”
Because of that, I cannot use the standard tax deduction for an external office (also, my contract does not mandate me to rent one). Is there a chance a coworking space could pass as “home office” tax deductible expense or would I need my contract / T2200 to be updated and use the standard external office deduction?
