I work a casual job so some weeks I'll be earning $2,000 and some weeks I earn $0.
The weeks I earn more my employer takes out HECS but overall I'm not earning enough to meet the HECS threshold.
Last financial year over $1,600 was withheld for HECS, but since I didn't meet the threshold I got it all back with my tax return.
Is there a way I can stop my employer witholding HECS so I don't get such a large tax return next year?
Can I fill out the Witholding Declaration and select No at Q6 even if I still have my HECS debt?
