Tax Help Program

We have partnered with the Australian Taxation Office and the Glenelg North Community Centre to provide free tax help to eligible members of our community.

Tax Help is a group of community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people on low incomes (around $60,000 or less) complete their tax returns online with myTax. Tax Help is available at Glenelg North Community Centre from August to October on Tuesday mornings. Please contact 8229 9999 to confirm your eligibility and to make an appointment.
