She’s a not-so-typical waitress, artist and student from Fitzroy, Melbourne. And she uses POP to max her tax back.


Tell us about your work, Izzy

“I’m studying fine arts at uni and I’m also an aspiring artist myself. But I also work as a waitress and a bartender in a few different bars and restaurants around Melbourne. Gotta pay the bills, y’know?”

Come tax-time, what used to go through your brain?

“Total death! When you’re working a few different bars and cafés, it’s a mission to pull all your tax guff together. Especially after pulling stumps on a Friday or Saturday night double-shift, the last thing you want to do is think about your tax.”

But not since you started using POP to file your tax return?

“Totally. It was super-easy. I mean, it really does all the heavy lifting for you tax. I’m notoriously lazy, so being able to literally file my entire tax return with one thumb was a major relief.”

How did POP’s intuitive Max-Deductibles system work for you as a part-time waitress, barkeep and struggling artist?

“Well, when you’re working in different bars and restaurants, plus studying, plus trying to fund for your artistic endeavours, it’s actually hard to know what you can claim and what you can’t. So, where POP helped me most was in knowing what I can claim in deductions. The way it ticked off every single possible deductible I could claim was awesome. I mean, I deserve to get as much back as I can, right? And I did!”

Would you recommend POP to other hospitality workers and students like yourself?

“Yep, for sure. It was super easy and really fast, I actually got a fair bit back. I was stoked.”
