tax deductions 101

They say tax is an inevitable part of life, but this doesn’t mean its all bad! Tax deductions are a sweet little way to top up your bank account. Here’s how:

So… what actually are tax deductions?

Tax deductions are expenses that lower your pre-tax income.

There are three main types of tax deductions:

  1. Work expenses (think computer for a designer, or a hammer for a tradie)
  2. Charitable donations (as long as they have DGR status)
  3. Voluntary super contributions

What is the benefit of lower pre-tax income?

Less taxable income has two potential tax reduction benefits:

  1. You pay tax on less incomeĀ 
  2. You might pay a lower marginal tax rate
Meaning you pay less tax!

How do I claim a tax deduction?

You claim a tax deduction as part of your tax return.

Claiming tax deductions during tax time might mean that you get a boost on that sweet tax time return!

And increasing your tax return means more money in the bank for you! Not bad at all.
