I know many of you have noticed that our price of $99 for an individual tax return is a bit higher than some other online options out there. As your trusted tax help, I want to explain why that is and why it’s worth it for you in the long run.
While a few dollars here or there might seem significant, it’s so important to really understand what you’re getting for your money when it comes to something as important as your tax return. The last thing any of us wants is an audit or problems with the Australian Taxation Office down the road just to save a few bucks now.
Here’s the thing – some other online tax applications out there just act as a middleman. They take your information, pass it directly to the ATO, and cross their fingers hoping everything looks good. But all the responsibility falls on you if there’s any issues later on. Who do you go to for help if you end up with a bill from the ATO 6 months down the road? You’re on your own.
Not here. At TAX123, your tax preparer personally reviews every single return by hand before it goes to the ATO. We double and triple check things like deductions, income amounts, eligibility for benefits or rebates – really digging into the nitty gritty details to make sure your Return is airtight.
So many errors or issues can be easily missed in an automated system. Things like missing a receipts for donations, incorrectly claiming a work-related deduction, or eligibility for an initiative you may not have realized apply to your situation. That’s where human oversight really pays off – we’ve caught so many potential problems for clients that could have led to hassles later on.
Moreover, our team will carefully prepare your tax return and ensure you are fully informed before lodgement. We will review each item and amount with you over the phone before submitting to the ATO. If you require any aspects to be re-examined, we are happy to do so at no additional cost until you are completely satisfied. Please note that our services are wholly compliant with Australian tax laws – we cannot use unlawful means but will maximize refunds through legitimate claims and deductions as per legislation. Your approval and consent are important to us prior to final lodgement.
But the time it takes to really scrutinize each tax return means we simply can’t offer the lowest prices out there. Where some online services might churn returns through as quickly as possible, we believe taking the time to carefully vet each one is essential to provide you excellent service and peace of mind.
With TAX123’s online tax return help, you don’t have to stress—we’ve got your back. Save receipts but feel confident knowing we’ll pick up the slack if any situations slip through the cracks. And if the ATO does ever get in touch, you know we’ll happily assist to sort things out. Now isn’t that worth $99 to you?
We’ll also be here year-round if you have any other tax questions pop up. With other services, once they file your Return you’re on your own. But as your trusted tax experts, we want to establish a long-term partnership and provide ongoing support whenever needed.
I hope this helps explain our philosophy here – we don’t want to be the cheapest, we want to be the best. Our slightly higher price ensures you’re not just a transaction to us, but a valued client we aim to fully take care of. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
