Canada Tax Questions Answered by Experts
Thanks for your question.
Are you saying you use half of the entire house solely for a home office?

It would be treated the same as any other business expense.
Do you see what I mean?

It is not about getting something back.
That amount of money will reduce what the total is that you earn from your business income and you will pay less tax.
I cannot know how much less tax because I am not your accountant and don't now your financial situation.
Is there anything I can help you with at this point in time?
