Delivery Allowance can I claim deduction?

I receive 41c per KM on my PayG summary, this is listed as a "delivery allowance". Since this means I am paying tax on this allowance am I entitled to claiming the cents per kilometre method as a deduction on my tax return?

Hi @ECurtis

 

Yes - you can claim a deduction for work-related car expenses if you use your own car to deliver items or collect supplies.

 

As you mentioned, you can calculate the car expenses using either the Cents per kilometre method or the logbook method.
