    Your tax return for 2020–21

    Be guided through your tax return journey and keep updated through each step of your tax return. Using this feature you can easily:

    • check pre-fill information we've receive from third parties and work out if you're ready to lodge
    • understand the options available to prepare and lodge your tax return
    • check the progress of your tax return
    • view the outcome of your return and easily view your notice of assessment.


    Whether you lodge your own tax return or use a tax agent, myDeductions can help you keep and organise your tax records.

    Throughout the year it’s a fast, easy way to capture information on the go. Once you finalise your records for your tax return, you can:

    • email your data either to yourself or to your tax agent
    • upload your data to pre-fill your tax return whether you self-prepare or use a tax agent.

    You can access myDeductions from the quick link on the ATO app home screen without the need to login. This is the screen you see when you first open the app.

    Records you add are stored locally on your device and are only sent to us if you upload your completed records to your tax return. You should back up your data regularly in case your device is broken, lost or stolen as this isn't an automatic process.
