Tax Time

Years 11 and 12 students are encouraged to commence the process of obtaining a Tax File Number (TFN). The fastest way to obtain a TFN is through a post office. Prospective university and TAFE students need a Tax File Number to defer their fee payments. These loans are made on the basis that you pay it later through the tax system. If students don’t have a TFN, they will not be able to finalise a government loan for study. There are several ways to apply for a TFN. Visit the Australian Taxation Office for details.
