In the ATO’s sights this Tax Time

The ATO has announced its three key focus areas for this Tax Time:

  • rental property deductions;
  • work-related expenses; and
  • capital gains tax

ATO Assistant Commissioner Tim Loh said the ATO is continuing to prioritise areas where they often see mistakes being made:

“Within these areas, we have identified common mistakes, and are particularly focused on addressing these and supporting taxpayers and registered tax agents to get their claims right this year.”

However, the ATO also recognises that many people are “doing it tough” this year, and expects fewer people will receive a refund, or they may receive smaller refunds than they were expecting, and more may have tax debts to manage.

Editor: Mr Loh also recommends that any taxpayers feeling overwhelmed, or getting behind with their tax, should let the ATO know as early as possible or “have a chat with your registered tax agent so we can work with you to find a solution. Don’t bury your head in the sand”.
