Community Workers and Direct Carers – Deductions for Work Expenses

By Ben Markovic

As we approach tax time, we thought it would be useful to share the latest deduction-related resources and information from the ATO.

This information is designed specifically for Community Support Workers and Direct Carers, and will be a helpful resource for members when they begin to look at their potential tax deductions.

Please click here to access the ATO’s guide.

Of course, these tax deductions will be separate to the pre-tax salary packaging payments accessed by GO Salary members. Salary packaging remains a popular way of accessing tax savings when working for an eligible not-for-profit employer in the care and community services sectors.
