Taxes are deducted from your earnings according to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) legislation. Information on the latest tax forms and accessing tax slips can be found on this page.

T2200 Forms

New McMaster Policy on Declaration of Conditions of Employment (T2200) Form 

The “Declaration of Conditions of Employment” form, also known as the “T2200” form, is a form certified by the employer and submitted by an eligible employee to the Canada Revenue Agency (the “CRA”) for the purpose of supporting the employee’s claim for the deduction of work-related expenses from personal employment income. Employee eligibility and work-related expenses are defined by CRA and may include those related to automobile, travel, home office and the purchase of supplies. 

The CRA has confirmed that the two temporary methods for claiming deductions for home office expenses—form T2200S, “Declaration of Conditions of Employment for Working at Home Due to COVID-19,” and the “temporary flat rate method”— no longer apply for 2023.  

Eligible employees who are looking to claim home office expenses for 2023 must have a T2200 Form, Declaration of Conditions of Employment completed and signed by their employer. 

Please review McMaster’s Declaration of Conditions of Employment (T2200) Form Policy.
