In the current Tax Year, in my previous job, I received a total of $1,302.42 Meal Allowance when travelled to remote communities (I used to travel regularly to various remote communities in NT, Approximately 700km away from my actual workplace). Meal Allowance ($1,302.42) was included in the payslip and it has been taxed.
In my current role, usually, 11+ hours overnight shift I receive a $13.29 meal allowance per shift.
1. Is my meal allowance of $1,302.42 tax deductable?
2. Is my $13.29 per shift meal allowance tax deductible?
