Hi,

 

My tax return went from balancing account to under review - been delayed, but the expected issue date is still 4th of August like before.  I just want to know what date can I expect my return to be finalised.

 

thanks 

GX

Hi @Sallyg88,

 

Thanks for posting!

 

Generally, it can take up to 10 business days from lodging for your return to be processed. If your return hasn't been processed within this timeframe, you can phone us on 13 28 61 between 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday to speak with an operator. Have your TFN with you when you call so the operator can ask you some identity questions to access your account.

Thanks, JodieH.

Hi @gx,

 

Thanks for getting in touch. It sounds like we need to check some extra information to help us finalise your return – for example, if we need to check details about your salary and wages from your employer.

 

If we need more information from you, we’ll be in touch. We may send an email or letter to ask you to provide some additional documents so we can clarify information on your return. Once we’ve received the information we need, your return will go back into processing.

 

We can’t guarantee it’s safe to discuss personal tax info on a public forum, so we can’t access your account to have a look and find out what’s causing the delay. If you want to check in and find out what’s happening, phone us on 13 28 61 between 8:00am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday.

 

Thanks!

same!  went from balancing to processing over the weekend!  a bit concerning when people are needing their refunds, and I am pretty sure I am not the only one!   I actually posted a question today about this, surely it's nearly finalised as CSA have already sent me three letters (over the weekend also) regarding new assessment formula.  I'm actually confused and maybe just a little annoyed :-/

@gx @Sallyg88 @dswift @JodieH @AmandaE

 

The ATO receives information from employers, banks, health funds and other sources.

This information is provided on a Pre-Filling Report or pre-filled directed to a Tax Return..

 

An employer has until 14 August to sent Payment Summaries to the ATO.

A Bank/Health Fund may need until the end of July to provide information.

 

Those who lodge Tax Returns in July do take the risk that not all information has been provided to the ATO.

 

The ATO may well be acting in everyone's best interest by delaying a return if there is a reason to suggest not all information has been provided or indeed that the return may be incorrect.
