Tax Help

In tax hell? Come along for some free tax help! 

Does calculating your gross income make you feel gross? The downside of having a job and earning $weet $weet moneyz is having to do your tax each year.

Tax Help is a free and confidential service to help you complete your tax return. Tax Help volunteers can also help you:

  • create a myGov account
  • lodge an amendment to your tax return
  • claim a refund of franking credits
  • tell the ATO if you don't need to lodge a tax return.

Run by Arc student volunteers, the Tax Help team are not accountants, but are trained by the Australian Taxation Office and must undergo accreditation to become Tax Help volunteers. 

Tax Help is not a substitute for accounting services and volunteers cannot give advice about your tax matters. 

Arc@UNSW Tax Help will open from July - October 2022 (details on how to book an appointment soon).  

Tax returns are due by 31 October every year.

If you are experiencing issues with tax returns from previous years, contact UNSW Tax Clinic for advice. 

Australian Tax Office



As a Tax Help volunteer you will be much more than just a volunteer. You will be a lifesaver and cash-saver by making taxes less taxing!

You will develop your skills in basic taxation through an intensive training program provided by the Australian Taxation Office – a great bit of work experience if you’re studying accounting!

Tax Help volunteers receive community and corporate recognition for meeting the high standards and targets of the program, so as well as providing you with lifelong skills for doing your own tax, volunteering at Tax Help will look suuuuuper great on your resume. 

Volunteering with Tax Help is also recognised on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).
