Individual Income Tax Changes
No changes to rules around work-related deductions
Despite the publicity surrounding the high level of work-related expenses (WRE) claims, and the ATO’s strong focus on this area, the Budget did not announce any measures in that regard.
The ATO recently announced that it will be closely examining claims for work-related car expenses in 2018 tax returns.
The ATO is concerned about taxpayers making mistakes or deliberately lodging false claims in relation to work-related car expenses.
The ATO will be particularly focused on people “claiming things they’re not entitled to”.
