Hi @AndrewVN93,


Thanks for your question.

 
The quickest and easiest way to link your myGov account to the ATO is to do it online through myGov. You will have to have your myGov sign-in options set to recieve a code by SMS or the myGov Access app to link to the ATO. After you've logged into myGov, select the Services tab on myGov home page and select Australian Taxation Office.

 

Select the Questions specific to you as the linking option. You'll then have to enter your TFN and the details of two of the following:
• a notice of assessment received in the last five years
• a PAYG payment summary received in the last two years
• a super account statement from the last five years
• a dividends statement from the last two years
• a Centrelink payment summary from the last two years
• your bank account details. If you choose to use your bank account to confirm your identity, it must be an account you had your individual income tax refund paid into last year, or one that has earned interest in the last two years.
 

Check out the information on our website.

 

Thanks

Hi @Alimadadjoya

 

Welcome to our community.

 

Unfortunately for a linking code we will need to speak with you to establish your identity first. I have listed the general procedure to link an account yourself however if you do not have the relevant documentation to use you will need to speak with us instead to get a linking code over the phone.

See Link your myGov account to the ATO See also Overseas Enquiries.

 

Thank you for the postl

Hi @thangnong1005

 

In most cases, you can link your myGov account to the ATO without a linking code. To do this, you’ll need your tax file number and details from two of the following documents:

  • a notice of assessment from the last five years
  • a PAYG payment summary from the last two years
  • a super account statement from the last five years
  • a dividends statement from the last two years
  • a Centrelink income statement or payment summary from the last two years
  • your bank account details – if you choose to use your bank account to confirm your identity, it must be an account you had your individual income tax refund paid into last year, or one that has earned interest in the last two years.

If you don’t have enough information or you’ve received the error message ‘ineligible to link’, you’ll need to contact us to get a unique linking code. When contacting us please have documentation ready as we will need to establish your identity.

 

All the best!
