The ATO has issued a warning that it’s paying extra attention to taxpayers claiming higher than expected deductions for the 2015-16 income year.
the ATO warns that taxpayers should ensure:
• their claims are justified
• they have not already been reimbursed for the expenses by their employer
• they are getting good advice
• they have evidence to support their claims
• the claims are related to their work
• they know what is and is not deductible
• they back up their data.
