2020 has simultaneously moved at lightning speed and also dragged on for what feels like forever. Alas, June is upon us and the end of the financial year is almost here. That means it's time to start thinking about taxes, take stock of your finances and scout out the best EOFY deals.

While tax time is always a bit confusing, the impacts of coronavirus have changed what and how we can claim this EOFY. In this episode of the Pocket Money podcast, we're joined by five of Finder's finance experts to answer all of your tax-time and EOFY questions. We cover everything from claiming work from home expenses and superannuation to investing in property and stocks, the Medicare Levy Surcharge and what we can expect from the EOFY sales.
