Can mask hand sanitizer be refunded?



The fiscal year is coming to an end!

The U.S. Taxation Office (ATO) has just announced various changes to the 2020 tax season.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the situation of many taxpayers in one way or another, which will be reflected in our tax returns this year.

Work-related expenses

The ATO predicts that this year the number of people applying for tax deductions for protective equipment required for work at home or at work will increase significantly.

Work at home

Officials, the ATO announced a temporary and quick tax filing method for working from home from March 1 to June 30, 2020, to facilitate the millions of Australians who were suddenly required to work from home during the peak of the epidemic.

According to this special new method, taxpayers can calculate all daily expenditures at 80 cents per hour, instead of calculating each expenditure of specific daily expenditures.

It covers all tax-refundable expenses. Under the same roof, multiple people working at home can also use this new rate method. People who use shortcuts to declare work-from-home expenses should include the amount of "other work-related expenses" in their tax returns and indicate "COVID Hourly Rates" in the description.

Inland Revenue Department Assistant Commissioner Karen Foat said, “If you use a shortcut, all you need to do is to record the time you work at home as evidence of your tax return. But all expenses are included. , Which means you can no longer declare any other work-from-home expenses."

If taxpayers wish, they can still choose to use other existing methods to calculate the cost of working from home.


protective suit

During the COVID-19 pandemic, another more common declaration item is protective equipment, such as gloves, masks or hand sanitizer, which are necessary for work in close contact with others (including customers and customers).

Taxpayers can only apply for tax refunds if they have paid for these items and have not been reimbursed. Industries that may even declare these expenses include retail, healthcare and hospitality.

What can't you declare?

Voyat said that in most cases, employees cannot declare commuting expenses, and due to the health crisis, working from home will not affect this rule.

"For example, if you work from home because of COVID-19, but you need to go to the office one day a week, your trip from home to work is still a private trip and cannot be declared," Fuat said.

She also said that the ATO expects that due to the increase in the number of people working or unemployed at home, the number of applicants for laundry and travel expenses will decrease this year.

"If you are not traveling for work, you cannot declare travel expenses. If you are not wearing overalls, you cannot declare laundry expenses."

"It is still important to meet the three golden rules: You must have an expense that has not been reimbursed, it must be directly related to your income, and you must have record proof."


Income change

Due to the spread of the virus, many Australians have been suspended, lost their jobs, or their working hours and wages have been reduced. There are now hundreds of thousands of people receiving government JobSeeker or JobKeeper supplements.

These messages will be used as salary or allowance distribution in the regular salary table directly provided by the employer to the ATO. You can access these tables through myGov, which should include all the JobKeeper subsidies you have received.

Suspended employee

Some employees may receive a one-time or regular compensation after they temporarily suspended their pay due to the new crown pneumonia.

These coins are also taxable and will appear on their payroll and return, but if you are unsure, you must check with your employer before submitting the return.

Taxpayers of other income types also need to include income protection, sickness or accident insurance, layoff subsidies, and gradual vacation fees in their tax returns.

The tax declaration matters are specified in the relevant forms.

Early retirement pension

There is also some good news for those who receive their pension early. Fuyat said, “According to the government’s plan, if you receive your retirement pension earlier this year, any amount you withdraw is tax-free and you don’t need to declare it in your tax return.”
