Deductions you can claim

When completing your tax return, you're entitled to claim deductions for some expenses, most of which are directly related to earning your income.

To claim a work-related deduction:

  • you must have spent the money yourself and weren't reimbursed
  • it must be related to your job
  • you must have a record to prove it (there are some limited exceptions).

If the expense was for both work and private purposes, you can only claim a deduction for the work-related portion.

Follow the links below for specific deductions you can claim:
