Tax Help

Tax Help is a network of community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns at tax time. They are not ATO staff, but they receive training and support from the ATO.

Tax Help is for people on low incomes. Since tax can be complex, volunteers are only able to help with fairly straightforward tax returns. Tax Help volunteers cannot assist clients with business tax returns, partnership and trust matters, capital gains tax or rental property.

Tax Help is available by appointment at numerous community-based facilities. Locations vary from year to year.
