    If you were going to spend on something anyway, sure. But if you buy $200 worth of ink and your printer dies you will be annoyed. When interest and inflation were high, it made sense to get a deduction now and bank it.
    With under 2% inflation, it only really makes sense if a pay cut is about to drop you out of a tax bracket and you will make a bigger deduction this year than buying them next year when needed.

    And vice versa. If you are expecting a pay rise that will push you into a new tax bracket, defer the spending.

    if we reframe the question as "how should I spend money for tax deductions" then extra super contributions is also an option.

      what do you mean trust distributions must be made this fy?

      You dont have to physically pay the money for trust distributions. and can go to the beneficiary loan account.

      Thank you

        I think he means he didn’t do a resolution and paid the penalty rate

          wat no, documents can be created as needed, e.g. just before an audit, just put the correct date and don't be stupid to admit it was created recently.

          The one thing you can't create retrospectively are bank transfers

      Nothing I already hit my super cap and bought what I needed before.

      I donated some money to charity though.

        Thanks for the conclusion, it's always great to have people come back to let us know the outcome :)
