How long does it take to receive an answer to a question
31 July 2019
All answers are provided voluntarily unless an employee of the ATO responds, so there's no set time which people will answer your question.
Keep in mind that the more specific or specialised the question is the less likely it is that you'll get an answer or at least an answer in a reasonable time-frame.

Welcome to our Community!
Where we can, we try to wait a little while to see what answers Community members are able to provide one another without us stepping in.
If we see questions with incorrect information, or where other members haven’t been able to provide a response, we’ll try to get back to you within 3 business days.
Sometimes we need to ask specialist areas for help to make sure you get a full, complete answer (which from what I can see, is the case for your initial question on Foreign income).
Check out A quick guide to Community answers for more information about how our Community works.
