  • Setting up your myGov account

    If your employer reports through Single Touch Payroll (STP), you can see your year-to-date tax and super information online in ATO online services accessed via myGov as well as your payment summary information.

    Your payment summary information is called an income statement in myGov. This is the equivalent of a payment summary (which some people call a group certificate).

    It is easy to set up a myGov account. Go to my.gov.auExternal Link, select Create an account at the bottom of the screen and follow the instructions. You will need an email address to create your account. You can then use your email address or mobile phone number to sign in.

    Once your myGov account is set up, you can link it to ATO online services.

    It is not compulsory to have a myGov account.

    If you use a registered agent to lodge your tax return, they will have access to your income statement.

    If you lodge your own tax return and you can't create a myGov account, you will need to contact us.

    For the 2018–19 financial year, employers have until 31 July 2019 to finalise your STP information so we recommend waiting until after 1 August 2019 to contact us.

    You can phone us on 13 28 61.
