The Tax Institute welcomes the opportunity to make a submission to the Government in relation to the December 2020 discussion paper ‘Education and training expense deductions for individuals’ (Discussion Paper), as announced in the Federal Budget 2020–21.
The Tax Institute has reviewed the Discussion Paper. Our submission below addresses our main concerns in relation to the proposed measures to allow individuals a deduction for education and training expenses, where the expense is not related to their current employment.
