If you’re thinking about taking on some extra training to advance in your career, enrol now and take advantage of your potential tax deductions. End of financial year is fast approaching, with June 30 the cut off date for your work-related expenses to count towards your deductions for the 2016/17 tax year.
The Australian Tax Office (ATO) explains that there is a range of self-education expenses you can claim if you fit in to one of these categories:
- Your course is related to your current employment
- Your course is likely to result in an increase in your income from your current employment
Study expenses to claim
Enrol into the course you’ve had your eye on and you could claim a bunch of related expenses and increase your tax return this end of financial year.
Your study-related expenses could include:
- Course fees
- Internet usage (excluding connection fees)
- Computer consumables
- Stationery (pens, notebooks, highlighter, yearly planner)
- Trade, professional or academic journals
