Can my tax agent’s fee be deducted from my tax refund?
Your tax agent’s fee can be deducted from your tax refund if your refund is greater than the agent’s fee itself.
The Australian Taxation Office directly deposits your tax refund into your accountant’s bank account. The accounting firm will then deduct its fee from your tax refund and send the balance to you.
Before lodging your tax return you will need to authorise the tax refund be paid into your accountant’s bank account.
