  • Tax Time Toolkit – General

    Welcome to the Tax Time Toolkit for 2019. We received great feedback on this product last year so we are excited to provide you with an updated version.

    This toolkit has been designed to give you and your clients the information needed to lodge correctly this year. It has tips for occupations, how to avoid common mistakes, ‘ready to use’ messages you can adapt for your own communication channels and much more.

    You’ll also find practical and tailored information about:

    • claiming rental properties
    • income that needs to be declared, including residency information and foreign income
    • claiming gifts and donations
    • keeping the right records.

    Once again deductions are a focus of the toolkit and we are committed to working with tax agents and the community to help people get their claims right. Small incorrect deductions have a big impact. In 2014–15, we estimate $8.76 billion was lost (from individuals not in business), mostly due to incorrect deductions and omitted income.

    We encourage you to share this information with your staff, clients, members and networks. Thank you for your support and working with us to help the community get their tax right this Tax Time.
