Welcome relief from the floods
COFFS Coast residents and businesses affected by flooding have quite rightly been given some breathing room by the Tax Office.
Tax Commissioner Michael D'Ascenzo said for many people affected by the flooding here on the Coffs Coast, their tax affairs are the furthest thing from their minds.
The Tax Office has set up a dedicated emergency support info line on 1300 304 975 for people to discuss their circumstances, and the Tax Office has stopped sending activity statements to addresses in areas affected by natural disasters.
The due dates for people and businesses that usually lodge and pay monthly and quarterly business activity statements have been extended.
For tax bonus payments, the Tax Office has given people in affected areas until June 30 to lodge their 2007-08 tax returns.
