Hello again,

I'm the person who answered the question previously. Please let me clarify that though I am from another country, I am authorized to respond to questions in this region as well. As stated previously, I did not realize that the question was an Australian question until after I had answered it. I apologize for the error. It appears that the rules for deducting toll fees in Australia aren't much different than in the U.S. If the toll fees are work related, the answer to the question is yes, you can deduct the toll fees. On your tax return, the deduction is a D2-work related deduction. You can refer to the following for more information.

This question is about travel expenses you incur that are directly related to your work as an employee.

They include:

public transport, including air travel and taxi fares
bridge and road tolls, parking fees and short-term car hire
meal, accommodation and incidental expenses you incur while away overnight for work expenses for motorcycles and vehicles with a carrying capacity of one tonne or more, or nine or more passengers, such as utility trucks and panel vans actual expenses (such as any petrol, oil and repair costs) you incur to travel in a car that is owned or leased by someone else.

If your employer provided a car for you or your relatives' exclusive use and you or your relatives were entitled to use it for non-work purposes, you cannot claim a deduction for work-related expenses for its direct operation, such as petrol, oil and repairs. This is the case even if the expenses relate directly to your work. However, you can claim expenses such as parking and bridge and road tolls for work-related use of the car.
