UNSW Tax Clinic – Get Free Tax Advice

The Tax Clinic is unable to take on new clients, but we will make contact with you in October 2021.

How can we help

UNSW Tax Clinic provides free, independent and confidential tax advice and support. We have outreach locations across Sydney and also offer phone appointments depending on your circumstances and location. Our tax advice and representation services are often in high demand, so we give priority to people who need our help the most.

Please note: We are temporarily running all appointments as telephone appointments. This is because our outreach locations are currently closed for your safety during the COVID-19 crisis.

Am I eligible?

  • Are you:
    • receiving payment demands or reminders to lodge overdue returns from the ATO? OR

AND

  • Did you earn less than $40,000 in the past 12 months?

AND

  • Are you unable to pay or access your own tax agent?

Help recovering from natural disasters and COVID-19

UNSW Tax Clinic is ready to help people affected by natural disasters (drought, bushfires, floods) and the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. If you have been significantly affected by any of these events and need tax advice, please get in contact with us.

Book an appointment/contact us

Step 1: Check if you are eligible. If you are eligible, send us your Online Application Form.

Step 2: We will contact you to discuss your application and book your appointment.

Step 3: Attend your Advice Session. Please remember to bring all relevant documents with you to your appointment. As a teaching clinic, you will first talk to a student volunteer about your personal details and your tax issues. The student will then consult with the supervising tax agent, and then return with the tax agent who will give you tax advice.
