Thanks for replying @connos 


Do you have a MyGov account that is linked the ATO? You are able to lodge online, If you have a Mygov account and it isnt linked to the ATO you can call us and request a linking code on 13 2861, this will be the first step to solving your problem.

Once you have linked to the ATO then you will need support completing the return, We can support you over the phone completing the labels, it is the same number 13 2861

It would be best for you to sort your  MyGov first then call us again once you are ready to complete the return. We cant tell you figures but we can help you through the process.

Please note this is my personal view; I’m an ATO employee who chooses to help out here in my own time

Hi @connos

 

The ATO does offer tax help  - https://www.ato.gov.au/Individuals/Lodging-your-tax-return/Tax-Help-program/, however to use this service you need to be eligible, the below information is the activites that are not eligible

  • work as a contractor, for example a contract cleaner or taxi driver
  • run a business, including as a sole trader
  • have partnership or trust matters
  • sell shares or an investment property
  • own a rental property
  • have capital gains tax (CGT)
  • receive royalties
  • receive distributions from a trust, other than a managed fund
  • receive foreign income, other than a foreign pension or annuity.

I would suggest you check out the website - https://www.ato.gov.au/business/starting-your-own-business/supporting-your-small-business/ , we do have other services that maybe able to support you - https://www.ato.gov.au/Business/Starting-your-own-business/Business-assistance-program/?2018_sbsuppo...
