Subdivision 900-I (Award transport payments) allows certain losses or outgoings to be deducted without getting written evidence.

This Subdivision also applies to entities that are not employers, but pay (or are liable to pay) withholding payments covered by subsection 28-185(3).

However, your use of the 2 methods for other *car expenses you incur for the *car for the income year is affected, unless you elect not to rely on Subdivision 900-I . Section 900-250 deals with this matter.
