Information for customers lodging Tax Returns:
To lodge your tax return on line you will need a myGov account.


To create a myGov account go to my.Gov.au and select create a myGov account. Follow the instructions. You will need an email address to create a myGov account – if you do not have one you can create a Hotmail or gmail account.*


All returns must be started using myTax- it works on almost any device connected to the internet – meaning you can lodge your personal tax return from a computer, smartphone or tablet – anywhere, anytime.


You can access myTax through your myGov account – at my.gov.au – or from the ATO app on smart phones and tablets. After accessing your myGov account, navigate to the ATO's online services, and click on the myTax quick link.


When you begin your return, myTax will ask you to confirm your contact and financial institution details are up to date.


Next, myTax will ask you a handful of tick-box questions about your income, investments, government payments, and deductions. Some of these may already be selected if information has been provided to the ATO by your employer, banks, private health fund, and other government agencies such as Centrelink – simplifying the process for you.


Once you've ticked all the boxes that apply to you, myTax will generate your tax return. But if your tax affairs are too complex for myTax, myTax will direct you to the download page for e-tax – the online tax return for people with more complex tax affairs.

Once you have completed your tax return please remember to log out of myGov.

 

* If you need assistance to create an email account please ask one of our friendly volunteers.
* If you need help to lodge your on line return – make an appointment to see Vera our Tax Help Volunteer – she will be at the Centre every Friday.
