The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has a range of tips and information to help you lodge your tax return this year.

And don’t forget that COVID-19 tests you purchased for work purposes are now tax deductible. You can claim a deduction for a COVID-19 tests you paid for from 1 July 2021 as longs as you:

  • used the test for a work-related purpose
  • had a qualifying COVID-19 test, such as a PCR test or a rapid antigen test
  • have a record of your purchase
  • paid for the test yourself and were not reimbursed for the cost by your employer.

While you can’t claim your new trackpants or ugg-boots, you can claim other working from home expenses. Find out more at ato.gov.au/wfhPR.

Lodge right, no worries.
