Tax Deductions for Hospitality Workers

The following is a checklist of tax deductions a hospitality worker can claim on their tax return:

Allowances Income for Hospitality Workers

Hospitality employees commonly get the following allowances:
  • fares, 
  • overtime meal, 
  • tool
  • uniform
  • laundry.
If any allowance is shown as a separate amount on your payment summary, include it as income at item 2 on your tax return. You must include the whole amount of any award transport payment you received.

Receipt of an allowance does not automatically mean that a corresponding tax deduction can be claimed, even if your work might be considered unpleasant, special or dangerous.

Remember, you cannot automatically claim a deduction just because you received an allowance.
