IT'S TAX time and many people are turning their attention to the complex and potentially stressful task of completing their tax returns.

During the course of the week, H&R Block Gladstone will throw open its doors and invite residents to come inside and get free help with all those tax related conundrums which have been preying on their minds.

H&R Block Gladstone taxation manager Karen Windress said no matter what the tax issue, they would be available every day this week to provide guidance and advice.

"We know that at this time of the year, most people start to grapple with the challenge of putting together their tax return and that focus on tax can cause uncertainty and stress for many," she said.

"This is about the only time of the year that most people have to actively engage with the ATO and that can raise all sorts of queries in people's minds.

"Everybody wants to get their taxes right so National Tax Advice Week is an ideal opportunity to have all your tax questions dealt with so you know exactly where you stand with the ATO."
