Tax deduction expenses explained
If you're hoping to claim your home office expenses in your tax return, be sure to check out the Australian Taxation Office's website so you're well informed about what can legally be claimed as a deduction.
The ATO cites 3 "golden rules" for eligible deductions:
- You must have spent the money yourself and weren't reimbursed.
- The expenses must directly relate to earning your income.
- You must have a record to prove it (usually a receipt).
Most expenses that relate to working from home are entered in the "Other work-related expenses" section of your tax return. In addition to home office furniture and computers that directly relate to your work, you may also be able to claim "running expenses" such as limited Internet and electricity usage.
