Each year, Etax Accountants gives a $10,000 tax-free cash prize to one smart and creative Etax.com.au user.
In 2017, more than 45,000 people entered our contest. That is a lot of reading for us! But it’s well worth it. Everyone gave us valuable suggestions and such nice, positive feedback.
All feedback collected in the competition is considered for future developments of the Etax online tax return.
The 2017 Etax Grand Prize Winner
Congratulations to Kaye Cheung!
Kaye is from Melbourne and she won the 2017 Etax $10,000 Cash Prize Competition.
Her competition entry included a suggestion about sending our clients a ‘pre tax-time email’ reminding them of all the deductions they might be able to claim based on their occupation. Sounds like a great idea to us!
She was thrilled to be our winner and plans to donate part of her winnings to the Make-A-Wish Foundation plus enjoy a yoga retreat holiday in Byron Bay.
Kaye’s thoughtful suggestion for improving Etax, which was part of her contest entry, will be rolled out to Etax clients in mid June 2018 and hopefully it will help people to improve their tax refunds.
Etax cash prize winners from previous years
2016 Etax $10,000 Cash Prize Winner
Spencer did very well on the numerical contest question.
And above all, he made a really sharp-minded suggestion about how to improve the way Etax clients can interact with their accountants.
Our Brisbane-based design and IT teams got straight to work and their new Email Q&A Form was rolled out earlier this year. Thanks for the awesome suggestion Spencer. We’ve already had hundreds of clients comment on how much easier it is to track and answer all the questions their accountant asked them.
The result is quicker lodgements and better refunds – now that’s got to be good!
2015 Etax $10,000 Cash Prize Winner
Daisy was our 2015 cash prize winner.
Daisy made a great, unique and well thought-out suggestion about including visual examples on the return.
We got to it and now there are plenty of visual guides throughout the Etax tax return.
2014 Etax $10,000 Cash Prize Winner
Catherine made a brilliant suggestion about an Etax mobile app back in 2014.
So we built a mobile app, and gave Catherine $10,000.
See more about the Etax app here.
