Hi, please help me someone!

I am currently holding a working holiday visa and I will be back to my country soon. I claimed my tax refund and somehow showed that I own money to ATO. Shows tax 001 and 1.7DR .

I am just wondering after I paid 1.7 dollars, could I get tax back from ATO? I am confusing why I am owning money to ATO and couldn't get tax back.

Please help me someone and advice me.

 Hi @ S_ally01


Thanks for your question.


You only get tax back if you have overpaid. When you lodge your tax return we work out how much tax you are required to pay on the income that you earnt. If you have paid too much it is refunded and if you haven’t paid enough you get a bill.


Thanks
