Tax support service for drought affected communities
The government has announced a new service to help drought affected communities manage their tax affairs when times are tough, and has set up a dedicated hotline on 13 11 42.
The ATO will work with the Department of Agriculture to identify drought-affected taxpayers, and will provide personalised assistance and customised support plans for business owners and communities in these areas.
The ATO has also undertaken to get in contact with businesses in drought-affected communities to make sure they are aware of the optio
ns available to help them meet their obligations.
