As millions of Australians eagerly anticipate their tax returns, a cloud of uncertainty looms with the new amendments introduced by the Australian Tax Office (ATO). The terrain has transformed from the end of the Low and Middle-Income Tax Offset to changes in work-from-home deductions and intensified scrutiny on landlords.

Whether it’s strategising to offset the cessation of tax benefits, ensuring compliance, or leveraging educational expenses for deductions, Vogue Advisory Group is the beacon guiding you through stormy seas to safe harbours.
Introduction to Tax Changes
The financial year 2022-23 brings several changes to personal tax returns that you should be aware of. With Vogue Advisory Group, you don’t have to navigate these changes alone. Our skilled financial advisors can help you understand these alterations and maximize your tax returns. Let’s dive into the fundamental changes the Australian Tax Office (ATO) has announced.
The LMITO Concludes
The Low and Middle-Income Tax Offset (LMITO), often termed the “lamington,” has reached its end, as confirmed in this year’s budget. The removal of this temporary tax cut affects millions of Australians, especially those earning up to $126,000 annually. Vogue Advisory Group’s expert financial advisors can work with you to find alternate tax strategies to compensate for the loss of this offset.
Alterations to Work-from-Home Deductions
There’s a silver lining for Australians who work from home – the fixed rate for relevant tax deductions has been increased from 52 to 67 cents for every hour worked from home. This can result in increased deductions, but the expenses covered under this fixed rate have changed. Removing the “shortcut method,” which allowed for a flat rate of 80 cents per hour, may leave some claiming less than in previous years. The financial advisors at Vogue Advisory Group are adept at tailoring strategies to your specific situation to ensure you are availing of all the deductions you are entitled to.
Removal of Self-Education Expenses Threshold
Another positive development is the removal of the $250 threshold for self-education expenses. You can now claim the entire expense of an eligible work-related educational course as a tax deduction. This is a boon for professionals looking to upskill. At Vogue Advisory Group, we can assist you in understanding what courses qualify for this deduction and how you can incorporate this into your broader financial planning.
ATO Crackdown on Landlords
Landlords must exercise caution as the ATO has announced a crackdown on those who incorrectly claim expenses. The ATO focuses on ensuring that landlords only claim interest on loans used to purchase a rental property for earning rental income. Incorrectly claimed work-from-home expenses and capital gains tax are also under scrutiny. Our financial advisors at Vogue Advisory Group have a wealth of experience in property investments. They can provide the guidance needed to comply with the ATO’s requirements while optimising your tax position.
