Dealing with the Tax Office can be daunting for many taxpayers, as there can be an element of fear, as well as it can be difficult to know exactly what you need assistance with. However, it is critical to try to resolve your tax issue sooner rather than ignoring it, as ignoring it could make your situation worse, and even mean that you are missing out on money that could be owed to you for a tax refund.
This presentation will cover the many ways that you can communicate with the Tax Office about various tax issues you may have, including what to do if you have not lodged returns in many years, have a query about whether something is assessable or deductible or whether you disagree with a decision of the Tax Office. Also, the presentation will outline your rights and obligations that you have as taxpayer. Additionally, information about Griffith University's new Student Tax Clinics (opening in July) will be provided.
