Linking your myGov account to the ATO

Started ‎31 July 2019 by
Modified ‎30 October 2020 by

The quickest way to link your myGov account to the ATO is by answering a couple of questions online.

You only need to call us for a linking code if you’re new to tax or you don’t have enough information to prove your identity online.

When you log into your myGov account, select ATO from the list of Services. You will then be asked to choose a linking option. Select Questions specific to you.

For this step, you’ll need your tax file number and details from two of the following documents:

  • A bank account that you’ve had your tax refund paid into – you’ll need your BSB and account number.
  • A bank account that has earned interest over the last two years – you’ll need your BSB and account number.
  • PAYG payment summary or income statement from the last two years — you’ll need your gross income. This comes from your employer.
  • Centrelink payment summary from the last two years — you’ll need your taxable income. If you’ve been involved with Centrelink, you can get this from Services Australia.
  • notice of assessment from the last five years — you’ll need the date of issue and reference number. If you’ve ever used a tax agent, they may have a copy.
  • super account statement from the last five years — you’ll need your member number and super fund’s ABN. These usually arrive via mail, email or can be accessed through your super fund’s website.
  • dividend statement from the last two years — you’ll need your investment reference number. These come from the company that you received the dividend from.

If you’re having trouble entering details or you’re seeing an error message, we have a troubleshooting guide that could help solve the problem.
