800,000 claim tax relief for working from homeHMRC has confirmed that almost 800,000 employees who have been working from home during the pandemic have already claimed tax relief on household related costs.The saving is worth up to £125 per year for each employee, and eligible workers can claim the full year's entitlement if they have been told to work from home by their employer, even if it has been for just one day during the tax year.Employees who have either returned to working in an office since early April or are preparing for their return can still claim the working from home tax relief and benefit from the full year's relief for 2021/22.Employees can apply directly themselves and receive the full tax relief that is due. Once their application has been approved, their tax code will be automatically adjusted for the 2021/22 tax year, and they will receive the tax relief directly through their salary.Myrtle Lloyd, HMRC's Director General for Customer Services, said:'More people are getting back to office working now, but it's not too late to apply for tax relief on household expenses if they've been working from home during the pandemic.'
