‘Bizarre’ Tax Claims for 2016 Revealed – By Joshua McDonnell at My Business
November 2016

Don’t think your tax deductions will automatically be rubber stamped. Here are some of the most ‘bizarre’ tax claims notched up over the last tax year.

Marcus Davis, principal and tax specialist at Crowe Horwath, told My Business’ sister publication AccountantsDaily about some of the particularly “odd” claims his firm’s clients attempted to get over the line.

For one, several teachers argued their Foxtel subscription was conducive to forming lesson plans. One history teacher argued the necessities of the History Channel for their professional use.

Similarly, a PE teacher attempted to claim their membership to a football club on the grounds of professional development.

Mr Davis also recalled an office worker who tried to argue that his 60-inch plasma screen TV wasn’t purchased for entertainment purposes, but rather as a second screen for his laptop.

Another taxpayer was adamant that his two-week trip to the Gold Coast to check in on his investment property was justifiable, even though it included flight fares and accommodation for his entire family.
