Tax help centre

Are you a current Deakin student who would like help with your tax return? The 2021 DUSA Tax Help Centre will be open from the 26th of July to the end of October.

Get help with your tax return

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 in person at Burwood and Geelong.

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