The end of the financial year is usually the most hectic time for tax payers. However, it is also one of the most anticipated times of the year because in some cases, it means getting a tax refund.

Unfortunately, not everyone knows whether or not they are entitled to a tax refund and many people do not know how to check if they should have a refund either. The following are some things that you should know about tax refunds.

Are you eligible to apply for a tax refund?

Whether you have been employed full time, part time or even if you are a student worker, you might be entitled to a tax refund. There are different reasons for which you may qualify for a refund. These include being on the emergency tax code, retiring from work, becoming unemployed during the tax year or even leaving the country part way through the tax year.

What you need to claim tax refunds

To claim a tax refund you might need to have a few important documents to hand. These might include a covering letter, entering or leaving the country documentation or an employment history form. If you are a working student looking to claim a tax refund, you will need a student tax exemption form.

When you have the necessary documents, you need to send them to your local tax office. Claiming a tax refund can be a complicated task and for this reason there are certain agencies that can help gain the required information and carry out the procedure for you.
