THERE has been a big jump in the number of Australians rushing to grab a fast tax refund, but there’s a potential sting. Tax specialists warn that being quick off the mark can result in costly errors because Australian Taxation Office technology is likely to spot undeclared income.
The new financial year is here which comes which comes with it the annual obligation to submit our income tax return by 31 October. Like most, you are probably in a mad panic trying to find your receipts to scrap together in a futile attempt to boost your refund (or worse reduce your payable) with some last-minute claims. For others, 1 July brings around a new sense of hope with a whole year to get our tax planning right in 2017/18.
STUPIDITY, carelessness, greed, arrogance, forgetfulness, dishonesty and laziness. Most of us are guilty of some, or all, of these qualities at some stage and we probably don’t even know it. But when it comes to tax time, it’s best to avoid all of them because committing just one of these sins can land you in a heap of hot water.
The end of the financial year will ring in many changes to superannuation and personal allowances while ringing out popular concessions for property investors and home buyers.
