Do you need help completing your tax return?

Tax Help is a network of community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns. Volunteers are fully trained and accredited. These volunteers are people from within the community who give up their time each year. They are not ATO staff, but they receive training and support from the A.T.O. Tax Help is suitable for people earning around $60,000 or less a year with fairly straightforward tax affairs.

Since tax can be complex, volunteers are only able to help with fairly straightforward tax returns. They can help identify and record income received through:

  • Pensions
  • Australian Government Benefits and Allowances
  • Salary or Wages
  • Dividends
  • Managed Funds
  • Interest

In some cases, people on low incomes do not need to lodge tax returns. Tax Help volunteers can work out if a tax return is necessary. If it is not necessary, and you lodged a tax return last year, it is important that we know this. Tax Help volunteers can help you to fill out a Non-lodgment advice if this is necessary. Tax Help volunteers will also be able to help you with claims for refund of imputation credits.

Tax Help operates from late July to the end of October by appointment only. Appointment days and times are limited to the availability of volunteers, so CISC can only assist Casey South residents.
