Tax return for individuals
You can use the paper Tax return for individuals and the Individual tax return instructions to lodge your paper return by mail.
Tax return for individuals (supplementary section)
In addition to the Tax return for individuals, you may need to lodge the Tax return for individuals (supplementary section). This covers items that are used by a relatively small number of taxpayers.
Depending on your circumstances, you may have to complete and lodge additional schedules with your tax return.
Referred publications and rulings
Not everything can be covered in the Individual tax return instructions. Sometimes, you will be referred to other publications that will help you to understand your tax obligations and complete your tax return.
