What Tax Records Should I Keep

In order to accurately complete your tax return you need to keep good records. Generally you must keep written evidence for five years. Some examples of records you should keep include:

  • payments you received, such as salary, share dividends, pension or bank interest
  • tax deductable gifts or donations
  • medical expenses
  • expenses related to income you received, such as work-related or rental property expenses
  • buying or selling assets such as rental properties shares or collectables.
