Tax Help For Horse Flu Victims

Friday, 21st September 2007

The Australian Taxation Office is offering assistance to businesses directly affected by equine influenza & the resulting quarantine measures. Tax Commissioner Michael D'Ascenzo announced: "We will work with people affected during this difficult time to help them meet their tax obligations. We understand equine influenza has directly affected the income of many people involved in the horse & related industries. Anyone who is having problems meeting their tax obligations should call us as soon as possible so we can make arrangements to suit their individual circumstances. Your tax agent can also contact us on your behalf." D'Ascenzo noted the Tax Office can help by: fast tracking refunds; giving extra time to pay debts (without interest charges); arranging for tax debts to be paid in instalments; waiving any penalties or interest that may have been imposed; & considering waiving the general interest charge in some super guarantee cases.
