Professional Online Tax Returns for Teachers
She’s your not-so-typical teacher from Cowra, NSW. And she uses POP to max her tax back.
Tell us about your work, Sarah.
“I’m a high school teacher, teaching English and Drama. I’m also a swimming instructor on the weekends, and I volunteer some of my time at the local Japanese gardens. I have a real thing for Japanese culture which I blame on having read too many romantic novels set in fuedal Japan, ha ha!”
Come tax-time, what used to go through your brain?
“Ugh… probably not what should have been going through it. Tax used to be one of the things I truly hated having to invest time in. I mean, don’t get me wrong – it’s not like I love filing tax returns all of a sudden, but yeah, it’s a lot less painful than it used to be. And the outcome is well worth it.
Is that because you started using POP to file your tax return?
“Indeed, it is. Very impressed. Anything that enables you do knock your tax over in under ten minutes and get a big return like I did gets my stamp of approval.”
How did POP’s intuitive Max-Deductibles system work for you as a teacher?
“Well, you may be very shocked to learn teachers don’t get paid much. Surprise, surprise, right? So, being able to claim as much expenses as possible can make a massive difference to what you get back on your tax return. In that sense, POP is very clever in that, once I informed its system I was a teacher, it automatically seemed to know everything I could claim as expenses. Like, seriously everything. Even stuff I didn’t even know I could claim! It was actually quite uncanny. I am constantly surprised technology like this even exists. Like, how did it learn all this about teachers?”
Would you recommend POP to other teachers like yourself?
“Without the slightest hesitation. I’m not shy to say I got the most impressive tax return I ever have before with POP, and that’s even when I’ve dolled out large sums to accountants before. And let me tell you, every single cent of that tax return is going into a little holiday fund for my long-awaited trip to Japan. Sayonara, baby! Here I come… ha ha!”
