  • ATO Tax Help on Fridays
    Get free help with your tax return from a Tax Help volunteer

    If you’ve earned money while in Australia, then you will likely need to lodge a tax return.

    Most international students studying for more than 6 months are considered ‘Australian residents for tax purposes’ which means you have to declare your income on a tax return.
    If you’re on a student visa and working 20 hours per week or less, then the chances are that you’re earning under the tax-free threshold ($18,200). Therefore, you will be able to get money back after completing the tax return.

    Haven't done tax returns before? No need to be stressed.
    Get free help with your tax return from a Tax Help volunteer.

    This year the ATO Tax Help program is running at Study Melbourne Student Centre every Friday morning from 2 August to 25 October.

    Tax Help is a network of ATO-trained and accredited community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns online using myTax.
