Re: How To Retrieve My Lost TFN?

I'm new

Hello,

 

I received my tax file number back in 2015 and due to personal reasons, I haven't actually used it often and led to me losing the document with my original tfn. I can't access it on my myGov account because it was connected to an old mobile number and now I have a new one. I don't have any documents with my tfn so I was hoping to get some help/assistance. 

 

Sorry and thank you.
