Tax Debt

Waterhouse Lawyers are experts at dealing with tax debt, particularly when the ATO has garnisheed a taxpayer’s bank accounts or is threatening bankruptcy.

We are generally able to arrange payment plans in even the most dire financial circumstances. In many instances we have successfully applied for reduction of the General Interest Charge.

The ATO is dramatically increasing its use of tax garnishee notices. Under a garnishee notice, the ATO can recover monies from third parties such as banks and employers.

Where the ATO has issued a garnishee notice, we can assist by ensuring the notice has been validly issued and, if so, negotiating the best possible outcome with the ATO for your tax debt.

Satisfied Clients

Very fortunate to find her

Tania, thank you sincerely for the result you have achieved with the ATO who carried out an audit on my 2002 return (in 2014!). This was an incredibly stressful time with no records, living in another country and an accountant who was very unhelpful.

You have achieved an amazing result, one which I could not have achieved without your professional help. My final ATO account was a mere 1.3% of the original ATO invoice. Now I can resume a normal life.

Sincerely,

Jasmine

GIC remission relief

That is such wonderful news about the remission of my GIC.

My tax predicament and trying to sort it all out has been rather worrying. I had managed to get myself in quite a state over it all.

But now light at the end of the tunnel.

I can’t thank you, Tania and your office enough for calmly and reassuringly guiding me through the process.

Thank you for taking on my case and thank you for the result – the sun is shining again.

Thank you

My kids, my wife and I, cannot thank you enough.

When we thought we had lost everything you gave us hope.

You are a kind, humble and competent lawyer.

You have such amazing caring quality, so honest and such a fighter.

We will never be able to repay you.

Can’t express how grateful I am

Thank you again so much Tania.

I can’t express how grateful I am.

You’ve turned everything around for my daughters and I, after a very difficult couple of years

Thanks soooo very much again.
