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.
