Tax Help at your library

2017 Tax Help Program

Tax help sessions are being arranged for 2017 at Spearwood Library, Coolbellup Library and Success Library. Tax Help is a service run by the Australian Taxation Office in many community centres and is staffed entirely by trained volunteers.

If you earned around $60,000 in the 2016/17 tax year and meet some other criteria, you will be able to book into a session. To check if you are eligible for the Tax Help program, visit the ATO Tax Help program page.

You should also have a MyGov account registered to save time. To find out about and to create a MyGov account, go to the MyGov website.

Sessions last one hour and are available at all three of the Cockburn Libraries branches as follows:

  • Coolbellup Library: Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, beginning 27 July 2017. To make a booking, contact Coolbellup on 9411 3830.
  • Spearwood Library: Tuesday afternoons, beginning 27 July. To make a booking, contact Spearwood on 9411 3800.
  • Success Library: Saturday mornings, beginning 29 July. To make a booking, contact Success on 9411 3840

Things to bring with you when you come to your Tax Help appointment:

  • your myGov user ID and password
  • your bank account details (BSB and account number)
  • your tax file number
  • an original or amended notice of assessment from any one of the last five years (the assessment needs to have been issued before 31 May this year)
  • income statements from all sources
  • all your receipts for gifts, donations and work-related expenses
  • details of any child support payments made
  • details of any losses on investments in shares and rental properties (net investment losses).
  • If you had a spouse (married or de-facto) at any time during the financial year, you also need to bring details of their taxable income or a reasonable estimate.

I work as the Reader Services Librarian at Spearwood Public Library. I order the books, and I take requests for anything you can't find in the library! I also research and write local history articles for the Cockburn Soundings, and for anyone who has a local history question.
