Parents who during the year 2016, paid transport fees in respect of their children under sixteen years of age attending church schools or private schools are allowed a deduction against their own income for the year, up to a maximum of €150 per child.

In order for the claim to be accepted by the Commissioner, taxpayers are to present a duly filled and signed application form to Transport Malta by not later than 28/02/2017.
