"Further to Member 193 on Income tax return integrity reviews - see 2011 TAXVINE No 41 (21 October 2011) - I find it fascinating that of my clients that have been subject to the 'review', 75% have recently arrived in Australia on 457 Visas. One of those has also commented that most of the other people he knows who arrived on the same type of Visa have also been subject to the 'review'. He says he is now considering Canada as a good place to live! All have had significant refunds, mainly because they have been in Australia for only a part of the year. One in particular had no deductions, only a significant amount of tax withheld during her 3 months of working here and a spouse rebate for that period as he (the spouse) had not found employment as at 30 June. Obviously a high risk return!"
