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.

Mission Impossible Achieved

Tania, You were referred to me after a relentless three year audit of my taxation affairs by the ATO. As well as threatening my  means of livelihood, the audit caused enormous personal stress. But you achieved the impossible and liaised with the ATO to obtain an unbelievable result. I am so grateful to you.

As a result of your fantastic efforts I am now free to get on with my life. Thank you so much.

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!

So very Grateful.  Five Star Service in tax matter

After 13 years of not being aware of it, the ATO advised me of an issue… a financially crippling, life changing kind of issue.  Their timing was exceptional, with massive cutbacks at work, my employment future was uncertain, and a wife currently going through IVF the additional stress was almost unbearable.

I spent almost 6 months attempting to obtain the information I needed from the ATO with very little success.

In desperation I contacted Tania, and within a day of engaging her services she had cut to the core of the problem, obtained the information I had not been able to and explained clearly to me what the situation was.  Within a week she had investigated the options available to me, identified a recommended course of action and put me contact with the relevant people to assist.

Tania was extremely professional and empathetic, kept me updated constantly on her progress and achieved a favourable outcome.  My wife and I are so very grateful and it is an enormous relief to be able to put this behind us.

I would highly recommend Tania to anyone having tax issues of any kind.

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.
