    Tax Rebates for Landcare Work

    Does the price tag stop you doing Landcare work? Did you know primary producers are eligible for a number of tax rebates for undertaking Landcare works?

    Sometimes it can seem more effort than it's worth, wading through the technical language, forms and what-have-you to get to the nitty gritty.

    However, Lisette Mill and the Basalt to Bay organisation, based in Victoria, have been working closely with the Australian Taxation Office to produce simple, easy-to-read guidelines to help farmers get the rebates they are entitled to for doing landcare works. 

    Learn more about the tax rebates primary producers are eligible for undertaking Landcare works.
