I use my car to go to and from work. I bought the car in 2015. Can I use this as a deduction on my next tax return? I also use my personal Laptop for work, all day everyday, bought it about 2 years ago, can I also get a deduction on this?

You can depreciate your laptop using our Wear and Tear Calculator however not your car if you only use it for driving to work and back from home.
