Tax help centre

The DUSA Tax Help Centre is now open for 2022.

The DUSA Tax Help Centre is currently open!

Tax Help is a network of ATO-trained and accredited community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns online using myTax. DUSA provides Tax Help via Microsoft Teams for currently enrolled Deakin University Students.

If you need help lodging your tax return, you may be eligible for the Tax Help program.
