Discussion on: 5% privilege tax for working remotely?

I pay a lot of money to live close to work - literally across the street. Working from home doesn't save me any money: It costs me more (electricity for the most part, and this place has electric heating and "winter is coming"). I'm not saving on commuting and the likes since I didn't have those expenses before (though "location location location" means that I paid more for my place (mortgage + property taxes) than someone living much further away.

So that's a big fat NOPE from me.
