    7 July 2014

    This year around 1,200 Tax Help volunteers from approximately 830 community centres across Australia will be providing support to people having difficulty completing their own tax returns.

    “Tax Help is a free and confidential service provided by local ATO-trained and accredited volunteers,” Assistant Commissioner Karen Anstis said.

    “Last year over 55,000 people needing help with their tax return received assistance from our Tax Help volunteers.”

    Low income earners who earn around $50,000 or less per year and have straightforward tax affairs are eligible to use this service.

    Many of the Tax Help centres also cater for people from non-English speaking backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, students, seniors and people with a disability.

    The free service is available by appointment until the end of October 2014.

    To find out if you are eligible go to ato.gov.au/taxhelp or to make an appointment at your nearest Tax Help centre, phone 13 28 61.
