Council’s annual Tax Help program is back for eligible residents

Gladstone Regional Council’s Tax Help program is back to help eligible residents submit their tax return.

The program, facilitated by the Australian Tax Office (ATO), is run by trained tax help volunteers who are required to undergo a police record check and have access to support from ATO staff.

Gladstone Region Councillor Rick Hansen said the Tax Help program will provide free and confidential assistance to eligible residents to lodge their 2019/20 tax return.

“The program is available to residents who earn around $60,000 or less per annum and have basic tax needs,” Councillor Hansen said.

“This service is always well used and helps in making tax time hassle free for eligible community members.”

Residents wishing to use this service are encouraged to create a myGov account and link to the ATO via their website ( prior to their Tax Help appointment.

Bookings are essential for the Tax Help program, so please call Council’s Community Engagement Centre on 4976 6300 or email to secure your place.
