ATO Hit List: Know what you can claim Posted on July 24, 2019
The ATO is committed to narrowing that gap and will closely monitor the items you intend to claim.
Individual work-related expenses don’t tend to add up to much. It’s when you multiply it by a population of 24 million that it all adds up.
The following items are on the ATO’s watch list this year:
Claims for work-related clothing
Deductions for home office use
Overtime meals claim
Union fees and subscriptions
Mobile phone and internet costs
Motor vehicle claims where taxpayers take advantage of the 68 cent per km flat rate for up to 5,000km
$300 dollar or less deductions without receipts
Last year, other items such as unexplained wealth, cash-only businesses and unpaid superannuation were also matters of priority for the Tax Office.
