  • Understanding your tax obligations

    Earning income from a variety of sources including salary and wages, the sharing economy, government benefits, and investments will affect how much you are taxed.

    You may receive a tax bill if you:

    • are an employee, and the correct amount of tax hasn't been withheld from the payments made to you by your employer
    • are a sole trader and haven't paid enough tax throughout the year
    • receive other income where no tax was withheld (for example – Centrelink benefits).

    To talk to us about your tax obligations and entitlements, phone 13 28 61.
