• Paying tax and lodging a tax return

    After the end of the Australian income year (30 June), you lodge an annual tax return to tell us how much income you received and tax you paid. We then send you a notice of assessment and your tax refund if you're entitled to one.

    Next steps:

    We check information reported on tax returns against records reported by other organisations to make sure that people pay the correct amount of tax.
