Tax refunds

Payments to ATO
A notice of assessment tells you if you will get a tax refund or have to pay us. Refunds usually arrive at the same time as the notice. If you have to pay tax, you have a range of payment options. If you cannot pay your tax on time, contact us or you may set up a payment arrangement.
Tracking your refund or fixing a mistake
Once you’ve lodged your tax return, we will issue you a notice of assessment. This tells you whether you're entitled to a refund or that you have a tax debt to pay. If you think you made a mistake on your tax return, you can lodge an amended return online.
Where is my BAS refund?
Overview of common circumstances when a tax credit owed to you will be offset against a tax debt you owe or retained until you provide further information. Information on when you will need to request that the credit be refunded to you is also provided.
