The Australian Taxation Office has signalled its intention to target tax deductions for dubious work-related expenses in 2018. ATO assistant commissioner Kath Anderson says workers claimed a record $A7.9bn worth of deductions for "other" work-related expenses in 2017. She says many people attempt to claim a tax deduction for private expenses and pass it off as a work expense. She stresses the importance of keeping records of legitimate work-related expenses.
