Can I claim public transport as a work related tax deduction? If so how can I prove that I used it to go to work?

Hi @Michael_M

 

Welcome to the ATO Community!

 

Macfanboy is right - trips between home and work are considered private travel. However, deductions may be possible in some circumstances (for example some travel between two workplaces). Check out this page for more information.

 

You can also find information on record keeping for traval expense records here.

 

Thanks, Michael.

All costs for going to/from work are seen as a private expense and can not be claimed.
