    • why you need a tax file number (TFN) and how to get one
    • information on tax, when preparing to enter the workforce or study
    • how to complete and lodge tax returns
    • an overview of super.

    Tax, Super + You competition

    The Tax, Super + You competition is a fun and creative way for students in years 7–12 to learn about tax and super.

    We're looking for students to develop creative products that highlight the value of tax and/or super in the community.

    For judging, entries will be split into two categories:

    • Junior (years 7–9)
    • Senior (years 10–12).

    There's a total prize pool of over $6,000, including prize money for the winner's school.

    The 2019 competition runs from 3 June to 23 August 2019. Keep an eye on the Tax, Super + YouExternal Link website for more information.
