The National Tax Clinic program is a government-funded initiative to help people who may not be able to afford professional advice and representation with their tax affairs.

This program is available to eligible individuals, small businesses, not-for-profit organisations and charities.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) support this initiative, but the tax clinics operate independently from the ATO. Universities across Australia have been funded to run the program, which means there are tax clinics in every state and territory.

Sessions are offered via phone or web conferencing, as well as face-to-face in some locations. Students studying tax-related courses provide free tax advice and support under the supervision of qualified clinic managers.
