How Can I Get Maximum Tax Return On My Tax Refund?
Seeking advice from registered Tax Professionals is always good to improve your tax refund or net payable. According to ATO statistics, 70% of Australians use a tax agent service- like www.mytaxrefundtoday.com.au, who can provide them the best advice for entitled deductions to avoid ATO reassessment or audit for wrong declaration.
Claim what you are entitled to claim
Claiming what you spent during the year, as far as it is work related, is the best tool to maximize your tax return or to reduce overall tax payable. If you used a particular item, partly for work, you can still claim a proportion of the deduction. Even if you are not sure about the expenses, it is better to save the receipt which may help you at the end of the financial year to pay less tax. Keeping track of your receipts is a good idea for tax deduction claims as they might be needed to be presented to the ATO. You can contact www.mytaxrefundtoday.com.au for more information.
