Twisted Tax Tales Short Story Competition

Success Tax Professionals is excited to announce our Twisted Tax Tales Short Story Competition. The stories will be put to you the public, for voting through Facebook. The winner will receive $10,000! Entries are open to everyone. The only catch is that in your story (maximum of 5000 words), one of the main characters must be an accountant.

We will be accepting entries between the 1st of March 2016 and the 30th of June 2016. So start writing your story and make sure to get your friends and family ready to vote for you.

The top 20 stories will go on to be published in a book called ‘Twisted Tax Tales’, in November/December 2016. Of these, 10 will be decided by public voting and another 10 by a committee.

Saving the Tasmanian Devil

The Success Tax Professionals’ Twisted Tax Tales Competition focuses on raising funds for the ‘Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal’ and providing recognition for talented writers.

We will be making an up-front donation of $10,000 to the Appeal. In addition, all profits generated from sale of the book in excess of the advanced donation will also go to the Appeal.

The Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal is the central fundraiser for the Tasmanian Devil. Administered by the University of Tasmania Foundation and working in partnership with the Tasmanian and Australian governments, the Appeal is the philanthropic arm of the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program. Established in 2003, The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program is the national response to the threat posed by Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) to the Tasmanian Devil. The Tasmanian Devil is highly endangered due to a disease epidemic caused by this unique contagious cancer.
