Council’s Tax Help program available for eligible residents
Gladstone Regional Council’s Tax Help program is back to help eligible residents submit their tax return.
The program, facilitated by the Australian Tax Office (ATO), is run by trained tax help volunteers who are required to undergo a police record check and have access to support from ATO staff.
Gladstone Region Deputy Mayor Kahn Goodluck said the Tax Help program will provide free and confidential assistance to eligible residents to lodge their 2021/22 tax return.
“The program is available to residents who earn around $60,000 or less per annum and have basic tax needs,” Councillor Goodluck said.
“This service is always well used and helps in making tax time hassle free for eligible community members.”
Residents wishing to use this service are encouraged to create a myGov account and link to the ATO via their website (www.ato.gov.au) prior to their Tax Help appointment.
The service is available on Tuesdays only, 9am-2pm until Tuesday 25 October.
Bookings are essential for the Tax Help program, so please call Council’s Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct on 4976 6300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure your place.
