As tax time approaches, AgForce members are reminded that the ATO has prepared a range of resources to help agricultural workers.

It’s important that everyone understands what they can and can’t claim at tax time and how to best prepare and lodge their returns – especially after a challenging year.

ATO resources include:

  1. Agricultural Workers Occupation Guide – providing helpful information about what can and can’t be claimed at tax time. You can also access a link to a one-page poster summarising the information which can be downloaded, printed and shared.
  1. Drought Assistance Collateral – If you have been impacted by drought, the ATO offers a range of assistance for individuals, businesses, and primary producers.

Remember to report all income in your tax return and remove any portion of your expense that is not work-related.
