Occupation specific guides

Each year the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) release a series of guides for specific occupations.

These guides are designed to help you, the taxpayer, to understand what you can and can’t claim as work-related expenses.

The guides are broken down into sections that match the labels in the income tax return and include car expenses, home office expenses, clothing expenses and self-education expenses.

The current guides available are for the following occupations:

  • construction workers
  • retail workers
  • office workers
  • Australian Defence Force
  • sales and marketing
  • nurse, midwife or carer
  • police officers
  • public servants
  • teachers
  • truck drivers

If you would like to download a copy of these guides, you can perform a search from this link.

As always, if you are unsure, ask me!
