Video transcript – Transporting bulky tools and equipment

This transcript is for the video Travel between home and work, and between workplaces.

Are you an employee who transports bulky tools and equipment between home and work?

To get a tax deduction it's not enough to simply choose to carry a few tools.

There are some simple rules that apply such as:

  • you need to use your bulky tools to do your job
  • your employer expects you to transport this equipment
  • there is no secure area to store the equipment at work.

If you claim a tax deduction for transporting the equipment to work, we may ask you to prove that your employer needs you to do this as part of your job.

Remember, claim the right amount – no more, no less.
