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
- truck drivers

As always, if you are unsure, ask me!
