Tax Help Program
Our Tax help program provides free and confidential service in Spanish or English to help people complete their tax returns online using myTax. The tax help program is delivered by Australian Taxation Office-trained and accredited community volunteers.
What can volunteers help me with?
- Volunteers can help you lodge your tax return online with myTax or claim a refund of franking credits.
- If our volunteers work out that you don’t need to lodge a tax return, they can help you complete a non-lodgment advice.
- Volunteers are unable to help you with amendments
