To whom it may concern,
The ATO suggests to us that if we lodge our return on line we would get a faster assessment than if we lodge a hard copy. From my experience this is only half true. I lodged my tax return and within a week I got an assessment. However and this were it gets interesting, I decided to lodge an amendment and from my memory this was the 10th of this month. I still have not received a revised assessment. When I go into my MyGov account, I read balancing account. Why should a simple amendment take far longer than lodging the original tax return online.
Thank you for your reply but it is not exactly correct. You stated that balancing my account means that you are calculating my refund. With due respect this is misleading because when I lodged my original return, I did get this message balancing my account but I did not get a refund but I big bill!
