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.
THEY say there are only two certainties in life — deaths and taxes. But when it comes to tax time, some things may be less certain and you can’t always bank on a refund.
With the end of the financial year looming, it pays to get your paperwork in order to make the most of deductions and benefits.
E-TAX, the free online tax return system used by millions of taxpayers, has been shut down by the Australian Taxation Office.
Adrian Raftery says there has been a noticeable increase in the number of financial planning firms engaging with Deakin University, wanting to make sure they have a chance of hiring graduates from Deakin’s financial planning program.
