Congratulation to Premium Working Holiday Jobs member Ross Mayhew, who won $1,000 cash by obtaining a tax refund estimate with taxback.com.
At the end of the tax year in Australia, the team at Taxback run a competition to give their customers the chance to walk away with much more than their tax refund. The lucky winners get to walk away with $1,000 cash to spend any way they like!
How Ross Took the News
Apparently when Ross was called to notify him that he’d won the $1000 he thought it was a scam! He eventually called the Taxback Sydney office to claim his prize. Looking forward to see what he does with his prize.
Ross went on to say ‘’winning the $1000 prize money was a great surprise because I never win things like this, it means tonight will get messy at Asylum Hostel and my friends will have a good weekend. The rest I’ll save for traveling and either a skydive or tattoo before I head home. I would also like to thank my tax agent Marian who did an amazing job and made my experience stress free. Thanks Marian and Taxback.com!”
Entering the draw
The average backpacker tax refund in Australia is $2600. As a working holidaymaker in Oz, you’ll pay about 13-32% tax. When the tax year ends (June 30) or when leaving Australia you can claim your refund and top up your bank account.
