Wondering if anyone can help? Why would the amount that I owe in tax be different to the amount stated iny tax return. I'm using the ATO site. Any help would be great! Thanks

Hi @Kora


Welcome to ATO online community :-)

 Have you received your notice of assessment ? This will show you the outcome of your return. 

Did you have a previous debt on the account ? 

I am not sure if you have already checked but you can see a statement of account by following the below steps

1. Go to the TAX tab

2. Income Tax

3. Accounts

4. Select Account to view transaction by clicking on the blue link ( It will most probably say Income Tax 551)

5. Filter by dates

6. Enter a date range ( I would choose 2 years), this will show you the statement of account.

Let me know how you go, I am wondering if you started with a debt or credit before you lodged you return that you may not have been aware of.


Regards, Tracey
