Tax (Income Tax)

We sometimes get questions from young people about tax.  Common questions include:

  • When do I have to start paying tax?
  • How do I get a tax file number?
  • Do I have to lodge a tax return every year?

For more information about these questions, check out the ATO's website on Understanding tax - Starting out.
