Free Tax Help on Offer at Fernvale Futures

SOMERSET residents can now access free tax help sessions at Council’s Fernvale Futures Complex.

The tax help sessions will be on Tuesday’s and will run fortnightly until the end of October.

The service is free and is being managed with the assistance of volunteers who have been trained, accredited and supported by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

Tax Help is suitable for people with simple tax affairs who earn about $60,000 a year or less.

Somerset Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann welcomed the return of the valuable service to the region.

“This service is of great benefit to residents especially lower income earners in the region,” Cr Lehmann said.

“Council is providing free use of the Fernvale Futures Complex to the ATO to enable the service to be delivered to Somerset residents.

“We are committed to bringing services to Somerset that can benefit our community and giving our residents access to Tax Help is just another way we can do that.”

Bookings for the free service are required and can be made by phoning the Fernvale Futures Complex on (07) 5427 0200.
