In order for Taxpayers to claim deductions for work related expenses in their 2020 income tax return Taxpayers must:
- Have spent the money they are claiming a deduction for.
- Be able to show the deductions claimed are directly related to earning their income.
- Must hold the necessary documentation to support their claim for deductions.
Note: The above points may appear basic to the reader, however Taxpayers and their misguided Tax Agents continuously front both the Federal Court and the Administrative Appeals Tribunal without addressing the above 3 basic premises for claiming deductions. Do not be one of those Taxpayers as the ATO is enforcing penalties where Taxpayers make false claims.
