ta /ta/ 

(expression) (informal) Usage note: This term is used by many speakers.

An expression meaning ‘thank you’. It is used very informally but is not rude or offensive.

Example: Always prepared to help out and support us, and Jess is also the busiest woman I know - so the time she gives to the band is so precious to us!! Ta heaps Jess! (http://www.tobymusic.com.au/journal.htm)
