I have used the ATO income tax estimator to determine my tax refund, the exact same figures in the estimator give a completely different refund amount than what the estimated refund is when I lodge. The refund when actually lodging is far lower. I have checked both to make sure the figures and deductions are identical. I do not have a hecs or Centrelink debt. Any ideas on why the discrepency? Thank you.
