People living outside of Australia – for non-residents of Australia for tax purposes. If you have Australian sourced income, you will need a TFN to claim a refund of tax withheld.
If your application is successful, you’ll receive a TFN notification letter in the mail. This should happen within 28 days of us receiving your completed application and required documents.
I paid for a TFN online – have I been scammed?
Although you can get a TFN for free through us, it is legal for registered tax professionals to charge for this service. Rest assured, if you’ve paid for a TFN, you’ll likely still receive it within 30 days. Contact us if this doesn’t happen.
If you believe you’ve been scammed by someone impersonating the ATO, you can submit a scam report on our website and we will investigate.
If you have any concerns about a tax professional, you can lodge a complaint with the Tax Practitioners Board.
Where can I find my TFN?
If you already have a TFN but can’t find it, you may be able to locate it:
in your ATO online services account accessed via MyGov
on a payment summary or income statement from your employer
on your income tax notice of assessment, or other letters from us
on your superannuation account statement.
If you use a registered tax professional, they also have a record of it.
If still can’t find your TFN, you’ll need to contact us.
