If there’s one thing I really, really love, it’s free money.
Every year at tax time, I find myself overwhelmed at the prospect of getting money I’m already owed. It’s so… exciting. But unfortunately, I’m not very good at it. When it comes to claiming costs related to my work, I’m a) lazy and b) clueless.
That’s where I need help.
Director of Tax Communications at H&R Block, Mark Chapman says you can claim dozens of costs you may not have ever considered.
For example, did you know you can claim part of your electricity bill if you work from home? Or subscriptions if you work in the media? I’m subscribed to Kim Kardashian’s website, but I would argue the embarrassment that would come with writing that down on a tax form far outweighs the money I could be reimbursed.
