Tax help for people affected by bushfires
The ATO has assured people directly affected by bushfires that their refunds will be fast tracked and that they will have additional time to lodge income tax returns and activity statements.
The ATO can also provide more time for people to pay tax debts and can help reconstruct tax records where documents have been destroyed.
Editor: If you have been affected by bushfires or other natural disasters, contact us and we’ll see what we can do for you with the ATO.
People donating up to $10 to ‘bucket appeals’ and other disaster relief funds this financial year will be able to claim a tax deduction without a receipt.
