ATO Director, Risk and Strategy, Kendal Hawken, joins podcast host David Jepsen to talk about work-related deductions, including what you can claim this tax time, what records you need to keep and how to avoid common errors.
When preparing your tax return, it’s important to remember that what you can claim depends on the type of job you have, individual circumstances, and whether you have the required records to support the claim. Records are typically a receipt of a purchase or a form of written evidence such as a logbook, travel or working from home diary.
Using the myDeductions tool in the ATO app allows you to keep track of your records digitally. Understanding what you may be able to claim based on your individual circumstances can help you avoid common errors.
