Hello again Kim.
If you would like our frequently asked tax questions factsheet please feel able to send me an email, or a PM with your email address (click on my name to the left of this post).
OH is doing the tax course with H & R Block at the moment....
Do consult an agent, although you can't expect them to know absolutely everything about every single area of work and sometimes things will get missed if you work in an 'unusual' industry, so if you fall into that catagory, ask the people you work with who they use to do their returns.
There are allsorts of stupid things you can claim for...
Suncream, sunglasses and hats if you work outside the office! (reps are included!) :o
meals bought whilst away from home.
travel to and from work if you have to carry your own tools....
If you travel by car to different locations and have bought a Sat Nav, you can claim for that too.
If you work from home, you can claim around 17% of your rent, providing your landlord says you can use part of your home as an office
Internet if you are undertaking study as part of your work requirements.
If you have a company vehicle, then car washing expenses are claimable.
Every night spent away from home is claimable too.
All of your med expenses can, I think, be claimed.....
The things you can claim for if you're a sex worker include... costumes, lingerie, lubricants, and 'accessories'!!!
Since we landed, I've kept every receipt for every purchase I've made since I got here, just in case I can claim them back!!
