Tax deductions for truck drivers
While you’ve got your eyes on the road, we’ve got ours on the horizon. As the kilometres pass by, our tax consultants know that life behind the wheel leaves little time for life behind the desk. We do more than get your tax from A to B, we go the long way round to discover driver-specific expenses that we can help you claim. Let our occupation-specific expertise maximise your refund.
Driver specific deductions
We go beneath the bonnet to tailor tax to the specifics of your occupation.
As specialists in truck driver returns, discovering all your deductions is what we love and why we guarantee a maximum refund. Here are some of the specific expenses we can offset from your tax:
- CB radios
- Sleeping bags
- Tools for truck repair
- Working dogs - depreciation deduction for livestock carriers and immediate deduction for their maintenance costs
- Sunglasses and other sun protection items (including sunscreen, hats and sun-protection shirts)
- Protective equipment not supplied by your employer (including overalls, gloves, goggles, masks, steel-capped boots, high-vis vests and winter jackets)
- Stationary, diary, log books, work bag or briefcases
After all is said and deducted, we specialise in making tax simple. With over 40 years as Australia’s leading taxation experts, we’re fascinated by numbers – and great results.
We understand that it's difficult to keep on top of your paperwork when you're behind the wheel – so while you focus on the road, we'll stay focused on getting your taxes in order.
All we need from you is written evidence of claims above $300 (excluding claims for car, meal allowance, award transport payments allowance and travel allowance expenses). Bear in mind that evidence must show you incurred the full amount of your claim, not just the amount over the first $300. Just keep your receipts and we’ll take it from there. For costs less than $300, you need to be able to show how you arrived at your claim.
