Self-education expenses calculator
The Self-education expenses calculator will check your eligibility for, and give you an estimate of, the deduction you can claim at the Work-related self-education expenses question on your tax return.
Changes to the law from 1 July 2011 mean that you can no longer claim deductions against certain government assistance payments. This means you cannot claim a deduction for self-education expenses that relate to your receipt of Austudy, ABSTUDY or Youth Allowance.
Information you will need
You will need to enter amounts for all of the eligible self-education expenses you incurred during the income year, including amounts for the decline in value of depreciating assets used for self-education purposes.
If you have decline in value amounts to claim, before you begin your self–education calculation, you can use the Depreciation and capital allowances toolThis link opens in a new window to help calculate decline in value amounts.
This calculator gives an estimate based on the information you have provided.
This calculator will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
