Despite wide publicity on the issue, the ATO is still reminding taxpayers that it is increasing its scrutiny on work-related expenses.

Last year, over 6.3 million people made a work-related expense claim for clothing and laundry expenses, totalling almost $1.8 billion.

Common mistakes the ATO has seen include, people claiming ineligible clothing, claiming for something without having spent the money, and not being able to explain the basis for how the claim was calculated.
