Are you an international student in Australia? If you’re working part-time you could be eligible to claim a tax refund. Students working part-time in Australia pay on average 15.5% income tax on their earnings. Taxback.com can help you get all of this or part of it back.

Most importantly, we will make sure you declare the correct residency status once you arrive in Oz. You will either be a non-resident or a resident for tax purposes; it will depend on various factors.

We also provide tax refunds for students on a gap year in Australia. No matter what job you are doing – fruitpicking or barwork, there is every chance you could be due back a tax refund. If so, we’re the right people to get your student tax back!

Our average student tax refund is $2600 so don’t delay and find out what you’re owed today. If you're a permanent resident or Australian citizen click here.

Students were our first customers when we went into business. The first tax refunds we ever got back were for a group of students who had worked in Germany for a summer. Nowadays, we provide tax refund and tax return filing services for a much larger client base, but we’ve continued to provide tax refunds for students every year.

Our Australian Tax Accountants can check out your individual circumstances to see if you’ve overpaid tax and are eligible to claim it back. The average Oz tax refund for students is $2600 so it’s worth checking how much Australian tax back you can get. If you’d like to find out more about taxback.com, click here.

    My account managers that I dealt with were extremely courteous throughout the process which took nearly two years as a result of an issue with the NYC State Tax Office. I was never forgotten about with Taxback.com or my account manager; Ekaterina Kamburova. She was kind, extremely professional and handled my queries and problems with the upmost professional courtesy one would expect. Thank You Ekaterina!
