18 Jun 12 Work related expenses - professions targeted
The ATO has published information about work related expenses for the following professions:
This follows ATO media release No 2012/19, issued 14 June 2012, in which the Commissioner, Michael D'Ascenzo, stated:
"This year, we will be paying close attention to deductions claimed by people employed as plumbers, information technology managers and defence force non-commissioned officers.
"We have found people in these groups are at higher risk of making mistakes with their work-related expenses due to the types of deductions they are entitled to claim.
"We will write to around 90,000 people employed in these occupations about assistance that we can provide. This includes new guides developed specifically for these occupations to help people maintain accurate records throughout the year so that they can get their claims right this tax time."
