tax rebates

Does the price tag stop you doing landcare work? 

Primary producers are eligible for a number of tax rebates for undertaking landcare works. But sometimes it can seem more effort than it's worth to wade through the technical language and forms and what-have-you to get to the nitty gritty. Basalt to Bay has been working closely with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to produce simple, easy to read guides to help farmers get the rebates they are entitled to for doing landcare works.
