Smile Tax issues - who should we talk to??

Hi

Husband is paying quite large amount of tax in his salary - we are on similar salaries and he pays quite a bit more - and trying to discuss it with the ATO is a nightmare. Who should we go to to get a proper explanation and understanding of what tax he should be paying out. We are in Brisbane (east) - any recommendations would be great - thanks

Has he tried speaking with his employer over this?

Check tax using pay calculator.

It will be accurate to within a few cents.

In case he hasn't had a chance to speak to the ATO, by any chance has he provided his employer with his Tax File Number? If they don't have a TFN for an employee, they are required to take out With-holding Tax (the sooner the employer has it the less income tax is paid) until they receive it. Excess tax payments are claimable at the end of the financial year in June.
