Student fee deductions

Hi. Could someone please advise if I am able to claim the student fees I have paid in the 18-19 financial year as a deduction/expense? I owed roughly $2100 once I did my previous year’s tax, as it was the first year I earned about the income threshold. So I paid that in about August last year. And then I made additional contributions throughout the year to reduce my student loan even more. I was told I could claim this total amount (approximately $2600) I have paid off my student loan when completing my tax return for the 18-19 financial year. Is it correct that, as long as I meet the criteria, I can claim the total amount under the education expenses part in my return? Thank you.

Hi @Najara 

 

We will need more information to understand what you are trying to claim on your tax return. What was the fee for? 

 

Here is someinformation on on claimimg self education expenses that might be able to help you. The study would need to have connection to your job and some student fees may be deductible and some are not. 

 

Have a a read through and please reach out if you have any questions.
