Kindness goes a long way

​How beautiful it is when we get to experience the generosity of our clients. Recently one of our clients, who loves to crochet, made this beautiful shrug. She gave it to us to give to our clients if they are going into hospital and need some warmth for their shoulders. Instead of having a heavy blanket wrapped around you, you can have the warmth and hug of a shrug. How beautiful!Beautiful shrug.jpg

Free tax help available once again for low income earners

​People on a low income can once again get free help filling their tax return. Low income is defined as those with an income of up to $60,000 per year of less. In Nowra this service is available at the East Nowra Neighbourhood Centre every Thursday from 9.00am - 3.00pm and Nowra Neighbourhood Centre Thursday mornings and Fridays from 9am- 3.00pm commencing in August 2017.

Tax Help is for people on low incomes including, but not restricted to, those who are also seniors, students, people from non-English speaking backgrounds, people with a disability, Aboriginal people or Torres Strait Islander people. Since tax can be complex, volunteers are only able to help with fairly straightforward tax returns. They can help identify and record income received through:

  • pensions
  • Australian government benefits and allowances, such as unemployment and sickness benefits
  • salary and wages
  • dividends
  • managed funds, and
  • interest.

    Tax Help is a network of community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to help people complete their tax returns at tax time. These volunteers are people from within the community who give up their time each year. They are not Australian Taxation Office (ATO) staff, but they receive training and support from the ATO. 

    Appointments and a myGov user ID are essential. For East Nowra bookings people can call 4422 1299 and for Nowra Bookings 4421 5077 Monday-Friday from 9.00-3.00pm
