30 June is rapidly approaching and it is time to do some urgent tax planning. Dr Adrian Raftery, a senior lecturer in tax, financial planning and superannuation at Deakin University and author of 101 Ways to Save Money on Your Tax - Legally! 2016-2017 edition (Wrightbooks, June 2016, AU$24.95), gives some excellent tips for you to action and maximise your tax refund this year.
