Save Receipts and Deductions to Fast-Track Your 2023 Tax Return


Get started on your next tax return early! To maximize your refund, keep track of your tax receipts and other tax deductions for 2023.
When tax time arrived this year, did you wonder where your other expenses went?

It’s SO irritating when you understand you can’t guarantee back the well deserved cash you spent on business related gear or other deductible costs since you don’t have a duty receipt! :(

We understand; When we talk to our customers, this is a frequent topic of conversation. Therefore, we have added a straightforward button to the dashboard of your Etax account, allowing you to upload a receipt from the time of purchase without having to look for it later!

How should you keep receipts, and what kind of receipts should you keep?
While the ATO requires you to keep a copy of all receipts you claim as tax deductions, you are not required to submit every receipt when completing your tax return.

The majority of people use this method because it is the simplest and only requires you to log in to your Etax account once per year—at tax time.

Start a “tax deductions diary” to keep track of your tax deductions throughout the year. This could be a bookkeeping sheet or even paper on a clipboard. Make sure you remember where it is, whichever it is!

Update your diary with the cost, date, description, and purpose of any work-related purchases you make. Snap a photo of the receipt or receipt and save it to a file envelope that you can view as later. Although there is a possibility that you will never need to look at it again, you are required to keep a copy in case the ATO requests proof.

Accommodating Expense Derivation TIP:
If you just keep a simple tax deductions diary (see above), you don’t have to upload receipts to your Etax account.

However long you have a fair record of what you purchased, what it cost, and how it connects with telecommuting, then you are set to complete your government form in a matter of moments – and you won’t ever pass up a significant expense derivation.

Keep copies of your receipts safe for the long haul, just in case someone asks for them later!

Could I at any point transfer receipts to my Etax account?
It is possible to upload a receipt that pertains to a tax deduction claimed on your return. There are many sorts of assessment derivations for business related costs, investment property costs, and even gifts to noble cause. Since the ATO will not accept every receipt you provide, it is essential to first determine whether it is eligible for a claim.

One disadvantage of simply uploading receipts to Etax is that you may have trouble recalling the specifics of your deductions in the future, and the file names on your photos will not be helpful. As a result, a tax deduction diary is beneficial.)
