Changes to the temporary flat rate method
The temporary flat rate method simplifies your claim for home office expenses. You are eligible to use this method if you worked more than 50% of the time from home for a period of at least four consecutive weeks in the year (2020, 2021, or 2022) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. You can claim $2 for each day you worked from home during that period plus any additional days you worked at home in the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The maximum you can claim using the temporary flat rate method is up to $400 (200 working days) per individual in 2020 and up to $500 (250 working days) per individual in 2021 and in 2022.
