Dreaming about sandy beaches and chilly mountain tops? Well, dream no more. You can open up your dusty suitcase as local hotels are welcoming restless Malaysians desperate for a change of scenery.
The domestic travel income tax relief allows you to claim up to RM1,000 in personal tax relief for travel expenses. To the delight of many, this special tax benefit has been extended to December 2022. So, there’s plenty of time to plan for a quick getaway.
What’s claimable under this relief? Your domestic flight, accommodation, train tickets, and even entrance fees to tourist attractions!
A quick note: Accommodation only applies if you stay at one of the many hotels registered with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture Malaysia*.
