Travel allowance

As part of my package, I have a portion structured as a travel allowance but when I used the TaxTim tool in did not prompt me to capture my business km's traveled for the year. Is this correct? Must I only capture it if I receive a vehicle allowance?

This means that you did not setup your tax return correctly and you would have a brown tax
return now, instead of a blue or yellow tax return.

What you should do is log in to TaxTim, go to your tax return questions. Under TaxTim's cartoon is a "SETUP" button. Click here this will take you to the tax return setup page. Under the Orange button, it will say "You chose the Brown Form package". This you will need to change, so click there to change. Now choose the blue form package. Now select the sections which you will need to complete, read them carefully. Then click to continue. To claim motor vehicle expenses specifically click on the motor vehicle expenses section. Then click to continue and you can finish up your tax return.
