  • Getting the deceased person's TFN

    If you cannot find the deceased person's tax file number (TFN) among their personal papers, you can contact us.

    We can't disclose their TFN until we know you are authorised – see Notifying us if you are the authorised person. Once that is done, you can request the deceased person's TFN over the phone, or ask us to send it to you.

    If the deceased person had linked us to their myGov account, you won't be able to access their ATO Online services account. Additionally, you will not be able to view any ATO correspondence they received in their myGov Inbox.
