How we can help
We can liaise with the ATO if you are being audited; obtain a payment plan for a tax debt; and represent you in a tax court case.
Tania, I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all you have done.
An ATO audit that was turning very ugly, thanks to an extremely uncooperative accountant, has now had an excellent result! I knew I needed professional help and finding you through an internet search was a godsend. You were able to turn this horrible situation around and knowing I had you in my corner, helped put my mind at ease.
Now today you’ve told me it’s all over, the review is complete and we’ve had a great success – what a relief. I can now breathe and refocus on my business.
Thank you Tania – you’re a star and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending you and your firm.
Successful residency objection – grateful to Waterhouse Lawyers
What a relief! I am thrilled with the ATO residency decision that I was a non-resident when I was working overseas.
And have you to thank for the amazing support, care and professionalism in every aspect of my case.
I have no doubt I have chosen the right lawyer for my needs and am very grateful for your expertise and diligence.
Thank you Waterhouse Tax Lawyers
I cannot recommend Waterhouse Lawyers highly enough. I am a tax agent and referred a client to the team at Waterhouse Lawyers who was in quite a bit of trouble after lodging numerous years of Income Tax returns very late but for good reason.
It was beyond me to try to tackle the issues we had with the ATO on our own. I was so relieved the first time I spoke with Tania, I just knew I could leave it in safe, capable hands. I was so confident after talking with her.
The staff handling everything communicated and updated us on the way and were a great support. We had an amazing outcome, but I knew they would achieve the result in the end, I just knew from the beginning.
You are all amazing there.
I hope not to use your services in future! But I am relaxed knowing there is a team out there that I can call on to assist any of my clients with the really big legal issues they have with the ATO.
Thank you all again. Thank you Tania. I hope we can keep in contact into the future.
ATO Tax Debt
Just when I thought there was no way to clear my ATO debt, Tania was there to negotiate on my behalf in a professional upfront honest caring manner. You are an Angel. Because of Tania, we are able to keep our family home, and have a life again free of the stress we had been suffering trying to clear a large debt.
Thank you sincerely Tania!
I would highly recommend Tania Waterhouse to anyone that has any form of debt to the ATO. Tania knows how to address an issue, and keeps you informed along the way. We can’t thank you enough on the professional guidance you provided based on your knowledge on taxation law, and what we can and can’t do. Once again, thank you!
Some sanity returns to my life
For many years I have lived overseas and paid tax in my country of family residence and employment. You can imagine my surprise when I received a letter from ATO suggesting I might owe a return for the past 2 years including a list of overseas income. Alarm bells rang as I did indeed owe some returns, but fixing the issue opened a whole Pandora’s Box of issues that I knew could only be solved by a professional expert in Taxation Law.
I trolled the Internet for hours looking for a Tax Lawyer in my home city, most of whom were from very big firms. When I came upon Waterhouse Lawyers I immediately felt that I had found the right people even though we were miles apart. I engaged Tania and her team without a moment’s hesitation and was on board as a client minutes after discussion with one of her team.
Tania and her team have exceeded my expectations in all respects. At last I can sleep at night and find speaking to them a bright spot in my day. They quickly put me at ease by breaking down my issues into separate parts and providing solutions for each. Their honesty and really profession approach to client interactions is enhanced with their ability to make you feel that they are part of your family and really do care about outcomes that are in your best interest rather than feeding the corporate revenue stream.
I unreservedly commend Tania and her team to anyone with a Tax related issue.
