If you are a commissioned or salaried employee in Québec, you might have work-related expenses in 2018 that you can deduct from your income. While most employees can’t deduct their employment expenses (such as cost of gas to and from work), you might be eligible to deduct your work-related expenses if your employment contract states that you’re required to pay them yourself.
You’ll need to have your employer fill out the TP-64.3-V: General employment conditions form for you – this form will indicate which expenses you’re required to pay for. You can claim these expenses on the TP-59-V: Employment expenses of salaried employees and employees who earn commissions (combined with the federal T777 form in H&R Block's 2018 tax software). Be sure to keep the document your employer gave you in case Revenu Québec asks to see it later.
Note: Your employer will provide you with a T2200: Declaration of conditions of employment form which you’ll use claim some of your employment expenses when completing your federal return.
