Lets take a look today on Expenses that you can claim as a tutor from this income. You can deduct these expenses which are directly related to your tutoring work from the income you earn –

  • Textbooks you purchase to keep yourself up to date
  • Cost of seats or chairs used for tuitions
  • Stationery
  • Advertising or cost of pamphlets
  • Photocopying or printing costs
  • Commuting to take tuitions
  • membership fees to educational institutions or organizations relevant to the field
  • Any other expenses which is directly related to tutoring work. If partially used for personal purposes allocate a fair % to tutoring work.

So from your Gross Income from Tutoring you can reduce the Expenses which are listed above and this will give you your Net Income.

This is the income you’ll offer to tax. This is the income of your Freelancing work of tuitions.
