Occupations Targeted by ATO During Tax Time 2011

Statement by Tax Commissioner Michael D'Ascenzo in Media release dated 14 June 2011:

"This year the ATO will be paying close attention to deductions made by people employed as earthmovers, flight attendants, carpenters and joiners (including apprentices and trainees), and real estate employees," Mr D'Ascenzo said.

"We have found people in these industries are at higher risk of getting their work-related expense claims wrong due to the types of deductions they are entitled to claim such as motor vehicle and travel expenses.

"In the lead up to 1 July we are writing to around 116,000 people employed in these industries about assistance that is available from the ATO, including new guides developed specifically for these occupations to ensure they get their claims right this tax time."
