I wish we only had a few hundred in union fees. DH pays $12 / week in union fees. I think that's very expensive

I claim a percentage of power, phone etc for work done at home, computer and home office, car expenses (can claim up to 5000k without log books only diary entries), charity, stationery, sunglasses and sunscreen...that's just what I can think of. All work related.

the 5,000 km needs to be substantiated. it's not a free deduction that the ATO will just accept. esp where your gross income is so low.

I get most of my deductions from travel (yes it's justified even on a part time income) I also claim washing, work boots when I need them, a portion of mobile phone and internet as we use our personal mobile for work related purposes. I didn't realise how much I could actually claim until I saw an accountant

As I said, I think it's best to see an accountant. In my experience they hide you lots of pointers on claims you may not be aware of and make sure that you have all docs necessary to substantiate your claim.

Union fees $150, registration $150.
Then I usually get a new pair of shoes so claim those.
If you pay for a course you can claim that - but nope not done that in a few years.
Little bit for washing. Taxable donations - under $100.

My cousin however claims thousands. He is a head chef at a restaurant.
He can claim meals out as research. Expensive cheese and other ingredients as research. So not fair
