The ATO is cracking down on work-related deductions this tax time, with car expenses, travel, internet and mobile phone usage, and employment-related education deductions all under scrutiny.

“There are three golden rules to remember when making work-related expenses claims,” she said.

“You must have spent the money yourself and weren’t reimbursed, it must be directly related to earning your income, and you must have a record to prove it.”

The ATO is also paying particular attention to omitted income and deductions being claimed for rental properties.
