Hi @Rubydean8,

 

Welcome to our Community!

 

Generally speaking most registered tax agents have a special lodgment program and can lodge returns for their clients after the usual 31 October deadline. The due date you have under a registered tax agent will depend on your personal circumstances.

 

As you have made contact with your registered tax agent prior to 31 October, when they lodge your return your due date will be updated on your file - there should be no issue if your tax return is lodged by that tax agents due date.

 

Thanks.
