What is the ATO targeting this Tax Time?
This year the ATO is targeting Work-Related Expenses, so you need to ensure that what you claim is reasonable.
They are focusing on expenses such as work clothing, vehicle, travel, phone and self-education.
Last year the ATO introduced real time monitoring of online tax returns, and sent messages about questionable claims as the returns were being prepared.
All income from the sharing economy – apps such as Uber, Airbnb, Stayz and Airtasker – must also be included in your tax return.
