Thought I'd start a thread as we're nearing that time of year for tax tips etc that newbies might not have realised.
As I only work part time, my earnings are pretty low usually so we have always taken advantage of the government super co-contribution scheme. I think it has changed a little this year but there is a good article about it here http://www.superguide.com.au/how-sup...ribution-rules
Basically if you put extra money into your super from money you have already paid tax on, before the end of the year, the government chips in with a contribution too.
Cool, eh? Not often you get money for nothing from the government!
