Let the tax time chat, begin!
You’ll be able to start filling in your data on myTax now, and you can save your progress as you go. We recommend you complete and submit your return any time from Thursday 1 July 2021.
At this early stage, most or all of your pre-fill won’t appear and you’ll have to enter the information yourself. Pre-fill is generally completed by mid-July, although it can take until August in some instances.
If you're waiting on income statements, we’ll send a notification to your myGov inbox when all of your income statements are 'Tax ready'.
We’ve got a great resource that covers what’s new for individuals this year that may also help.
You advise that it can take up until August for pre-fill to be completed in some instances. This needs to be corrected. I received an email from the ATO telling me that I could expect to wait until 'around 7 to 21 October' before I would be notified that my pre-fill had been completed. Let's set the record straight!
Hi. This year I plan on filling out my own tax return. I will have Capital gains to declare and will have a bill at the end of my lodgement to the Tax office.
My question is:
Thank you kindly
If you lodge your own tax return and it results in a tax bill, payment is due by 21 November. As 21 November is a Sunday this year, your tax payment will be due on Monday 22 November.
If your debt is $100,000 or less you can use our online services to create a payment arrangement . We also have a payment plan estimator that gives you help to work out a plan that meets your circumstances.
Best wishes with it all.
I have a question regarding my annual salary calculation.
I just received my last pay slip (period of June), but because it was processed today, this salary seems to be part of next FY totals.
This means my FY 20/21 salary is only calculated for 11 month.
This seems really strange to me. Could someone please advise if this is OK or if my employer made a mistake?
