Your employer provides you with a home? Do you pay any rent towards it?

No the employer does not provide the home, but I have an existing bond. Can I use the amount I pay on my bond to claim as a deduction and where do I complete it on my tax return?

So your employer provides you with money each month to pay for your home? What is the reason for this?

I supplied you with the wrong code it's 3713 other allowances. I'm a School Teacher, all teachers get this subsidy.

You will not be able to claim then against this, it is a subsidy for personal use.
