SECTION 28-180   Car expenses related to award transport payments  

28-180(1)  


Subdivision 900-I (Award transport payments) allows certain losses or outgoings to be deducted without getting written evidence. The losses or outgoings are *transport expenses related to an allowance or reimbursement paid or payable to you by your employer under an *industrial instrument that was in force on 29 October 1986.
Note:

This Subdivision also applies to entities that are not employers, but pay (or are liable to pay) withholding payments covered by subsection 28-185(3).

28-180(2)  


If that Subdivision lets you deduct *car expenses, or parts of *car expenses, without getting written evidence, you don't need to use any of the 2 methods to calculate your deductions for those expenses or parts of expenses.

28-180(3)  


However, your use of the 2 methods for other *car expenses you incur for the *car for the income year is affected, unless you elect not to rely on Subdivision 900-I . Section 900-250 deals with this matter.
