Am so confused! Registered for Mutual Community extras cover a couple of months ago and just realised we have been charged more than we were quoted for. Rang them and they said its because we haven't filled out this medicare levy form giving us 30% off. So they are sending me the form to do this and said I can claim back the extra I have paid with my tax return. Fine. So go to sort tax return today and they said we aren't entitled to the 30% off. Though they didn't seem to know what they were talking about .
Can anyone shed any light?
They also said that 475ers aren't classed as residents of Australia for tax purposes and they couldn't give us an idea of how much we could claim because they haven't got the paperwork through about such cases yet. Really helpful - how the hell are we supposed to know what to do when the bloody accountants don't know what they are on about.
