Hey people,

Iv been working in Oz for the past few months (made the mistake of coming out here wth little money so have been working hard!) and am just wondering about the people who has been through it and done the whole tax back thing...Iv heard from some people you get all of your tax back and from others you don't get much?! Can anyone help!?

Thanks xxxxxx

I used in order to get some of those hard earned aussie dollars back and it was fairly simple. I don't know how much of a cut they take and I'd be very interested in finding out what country they're based in as I had some very strange telephone conversations along the lines of "helloooo......taxback dut com, taxback dut com...." But at the end of the end day I got some hard currency back and I didn't have to deal with Australian tax officials.

Good luck,
