Hi,

 

Now that the ATO magically pre-fills my income details. 

Why isn't this prefilled into my spouses tax return?  And why is hers not showing up in mine?  It is a pain to do this manually when everything else is prefilled

 

You have all the details there why cant this be prefilled? 

Regards,

Probably because it is private information and can only be obtained by directly asking your partner.

 

Imagine a situation where a couple split in August 2018 and now in July 2019 you now have access to all of their personal finance details without permission just because you have access to their tax file number.

 

You should only ever have access to your own financial information.
