Here are a 3 wise ideas on what you can do with your return depending on how you’re feeling about your financial situation*.

1. Pay off outstanding debts 

This might not seem like the sexiest way to spend your money but it certainly is a smart move. 

If your tax refund isn’t enough to pay down all your debt, this extra contribution can still help you get out of debt faster, which is great. Keep in mind, if you have a credit card or a personal loan, it’s a good idea to pay off that debt before you start investing.

2. Consider investing.

Even if your tax return is on the smaller side and you only have a few hundred dollars to work with, you could consider investing it. There are a few options out there with low fees – so make sure to do your research on what’s right for you. Keep in mind, if you have a credit card or a personal loan, it’s a good idea to pay off that debt before you start investing.

3. Invest in yourself.

It’s always a good idea to prioritise your well-being and be the very best version of yourself. If there’s a course you’ve been wanting to take, a retreat you’ve been wanting to go on, or a device that you’ve had your eye on – now might be a good time to take the leap if you’re able.

Plus, if the course or thing you buy is linked to your current job or improving your skills then it might be tax-deductible too.


It’s also a smart move to pay with cash or debit vs a credit card so you’re not paying extra in interest.

A note on COVID-19 and your taxes:

If you’ve been working from home, The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is allowing people to claim 80 cents per hour for all their running expenses, rather than needing to calculate costs for specific running expenses. Refer to the ATO or your tax agent for the full eligibility requirements.
