Q: Ken has purchased a new laptop amounting RM 4,000 for personal use on 10 August 2020 and there is only one receipt. In his income tax return for Year of Assessment 2020, can he claim RM 1,500 under lifestyle relief and RM 2,500 under the special additional lifestyle relief for the purchase of smartphone/tablet/personal computer? 

A: Yes, he can maximise the relief claim by splitting the laptop cost under 2 reliefs in his income tax return for Year of Assessment 2020 as he has met the criteria for the special additional lifestyle relief (up to RM 2,500):

  • Purchase of personal computer, smartphone or tablet for self, spouse or child use/benefit and not for business use; and
  • Purchase was made during the period between 1 June 2020 to 31 December 2020. 

Wishing you plentiful tax savings!
