  • tax help?

    This is my first year lodging a tax return as it's my first year I earnt within the bracket.

    Being 18, im an immature shit and wouldnt have the first clue what to do. My assumption is that i would be better off paying an accountant to process it for me.

    Which brings me to why i posted this thread, does anyone know a decent accountant that wont cost me an arm and a leg? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Cheers, Jack.

          Try the online Do-It-Yourself tax return.

          Can only assume you dont have a heap of rental properties
          or investments???

          READ IT CAREFULLY do it yourself...

          Good way to start learning how it all works...

              E-tax essentials

              All free dude, and pretty straight forward if, as Jules said, you don't have a bunch of investments etc.

                  I have always used e-tax myself. First year of work and I thought along the same lines as you.... might be more complex, might be able to do things better to get better deductions.

                  so: I filled in e-tax to see what I could get on my own before going to an accountant.
                  Went to the local H&R block franchises... They pretty much filled in the e-tax infront of me after asking questions and looking at my little collection of receipts.
                  Answer = same as when I filled in the e-tax myself. (suprise, suprise!)

                  Unless you have investments or a business or a specialist job.... do it youself and save yourself $100. (If your situaltion is simple/standard, you are unlikely to miss more than $100 of deductions anyway, and that way you understand tax more, so you can take advantage of it in the future, and not be taken advantage of!)

                        +1 for e-tax... DIY option...

                        Best way to learn what things you can actually deduct for next year when you read up on it and that way you can keep the receipts etc.

                        If it is a basic return then any accountant will just fill in the boxes the same as you would.

                          Etax Accountants is a private company which is not associated with the ATO which is why they charge...Also have a look at some of the occupation guides on the ATO website it will give you an idea of the types of things you may be able to claim.

                          Just bear in mind that if you go to an accountant (as opposed to ITP & H&R Block) the fee is likely to be much higher (my firm charges $165 as a minimum fee). If all you have is a payment summary & a couple of deductions your better off doing it yourself.
