I have recently changed jobs and now I telecommute... that is, I work from my home in Cape Town even though the company I work for is based in Johannesburg. I am using my own office space, as well as my own internet connection for work purposes (though I get a modest monthly allowance for internet usage). Am I able to claim back any of the municipal rates and taxes that I pay on my home now that I am using it as my place of work?
