Finance experts are advising Wagga's tax payers on how to optimise their tax returns as another financial year draws to an end.
Director of Bush and Campbell Accountants, Rebecca Nicoll, said the key aspect to note this year was superannuation.
"For those working for themselves or wages, be mindful of the government changing rules of superannuation," she said.
"You can actually top up your super between now and the end of June for a maximum of $25,000 so you might even be able to get an extra tax deduction."
Another super catch often overlooked is the possibility for government contributions.
"People earning in the lower income range can actually apply to have the government top your super up for you," Mrs Nicoll said.
"If you have a taxable income under $37,697 the government will do a 50 per cent match up to as much as $500, so if you put in $100, they'll add $50."

Aside for superannuation, Mrs Nicolls advised that tax payers get in quick to ensure they cover all avenues.
"Particularly when going through a tax agent, the sooner the better," she said.
"They have longer than you do but it's best to get on their listing soon especially if you think you may have a problem."
The finance expert added that keeping documents was vital when making claims.
"Make sure you have receipts, other types of evidence like bank statements, things that prove you have actually paid an amount," she said.
"Also keep log books for work cars, or if using a phone for work, keep a diary."
Mrs Nicolls said she had a general philosophy in regards to tax time.
"Think like this: If I only have to do this because of work, then it can most likely be claimed with tax," she said.
