TAX HELPEvent Date : 27th July 2017 to 31st October 2017
OUR CENTER IS OFFERING TAX HELP
Tax Help is a network of Australian Taxation Office-trained and accredited community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns.
Tax Help is available from July to October in all capital cities and many regional areas across Australia.
Am I eligible for Tax Help?
You are eligible for Tax Help in 2016–17 if your income is around $60,000 or less for the income year and you did not:
• work as a contractor, for example a contract cleaner or taxi driver
• run a business, including as a sole trader
• have partnership or trust matters
• sell shares or an investment property
• own a rental property
• have capital gains tax (CGT)
• receive royalties
• receive distributions from a trust, other than a managed fund
• receive foreign income, other than a foreign pension or annuity.
What can volunteers help me with?
Volunteers can help you lodge your tax return or amendment online or claim a refund of franking credits.
If our volunteers work out that you don’t need to lodge a tax return, they can help you complete a non-lodgment advice.
Remember to bring these to your appointment:
• your myGov user ID and password
• your bank account details (BSB and account number)
• your tax file number
• an original or amended notice of assessment from any one of the last five years
• income statements from all sources
• all your receipts for gifts, donations and work-related expenses
• details of any child support payments made
• details of any losses on investments in shares and rental properties (net investment losses)
• If you had a spouse (married or de-facto) at any time during the financial year, you also need to bring details of their taxable income or a reasonable estimate.
If you would like to make an appointment for tax help, please contact our Centre. Please speak to Front Desk reception Staff on 9744 1866.
