Tax Return for Under 21 and Students

3 min read

Supporting students year round

If you are under 21 or studying full time (under 25 years) we'll take care of your tax return. For just $79*, our consultants are sharpening their pencils to help you achieve your best possible tax refund.

Even if you're an international student, but studying for 6 months or longer, you are usually considered an Australian Resident for tax purposes and may be required to file your student tax return each year. 

Whether you're a student on a gap year, working part-time, doing fruit-picking or hospitality/retail work, you could be eligible for a tax refund. With tax rules changing this year for working holiday-makers, it’s more important than ever to get your tax return right. We can help you work out your residency status, the tax rate that applies to you and file the return correctly so you can get any refund you’re entitled to sooner rather than later.

Beyond your return

We don’t just lodge and forget. Tax time is our time to shine but we’re also here for the rest of the year to help with student-specific situations such as understanding the tax implications of part-time work, HEC/HELP debt, working holidays and residency issues for example.

While you’re busy gaining knowledge, we’re busy applying ours to maximising what’s in your pocket.

Tax tips for Students

Check out the following tax tips to help you manage tax time:

Maximum refund guarantee

It’s rare that we don’t perfect our paperwork, but if you find you’re entitled to a larger refund, we'll refund your preparation fee and file an amendment with the ATO. We can do this up to 2 years after original notice of assessment.

Assistance, anytime

Our year-round support means we’re fascinated by numbers both at tax time and beyond. We’re here 365 days to help with student-specific situations such as part-time work, working holidays, residency issues, tax-saving tips and late tax returns.

Upfront guaranteed pricing

We tell you exactly how much it's going to cost and there are no hidden extras. At participating offices, if you’re under 21 or a full-time student (under 25 years), just $79* lets you invest in a better return. The best part is, our fees are tax deductible.

Satisfaction guarantee

By offering expert and personal service, we have the know-how to ensure you get all the offsets and deductions you deserve. If our services fall short of satisfying, simply stop us from lodging your return at no cost to you.
