2020 Tax Year - T2200S Communication

During the 2020 calendar year, following guidelines from public health, many University of Guelph faculty and staff have moved to working-from-home because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This has raised many questions regarding an employee’s ability to deduct home-based work expenses when filing their 2020 income tax returns and whether the University will be issuing T2200S forms. 

Kudos to the OVC Smith Lane Animal Hospital Team

The OVC Smith Lane Animal Hospital team located within the Ontario Veterinary College’s Hill's Pet Nutrition Primary Healthcare Centre are a small, but mighty group.
