Occupations in the spotlight this tax time
The ATO has stated that, this year, they will be paying close attention to deductions claimed by people employed as:
- information technology managers; and
- defence force non-commissioned officers.
They have found people in these groups are at higher risk of making mistakes with their work related expenses due to the types of deductions they are entitled to claim.
They will write to around 90,000 people employed in these occupations about assistance that the ATO can provide (including new guides developed specifically for these occupations to help people maintain accurate records throughout the year).
