Hi @vivrantc,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

Generally speaking, to be able to claim a deduction in your tax return, it needs to be either a work-related expense or a personal expense, such as a donations or the cost of managing your tax affairs.

 

To be an eligible work-related expense:

  • you must have spent the money yourself and weren't reimbursed
  • it must be directly related to earning your income
  • you must have a record to prove it.

You can find a list of deductions you can claim on our website including certain deductions for specific industries and occupations.

 

If you have further questions, you can phone us on 13 28 61 between 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday to speak with an operator.

 

Thanks.
