• 2016 Pre-fill availability

    You can use the following information to check if data is available to be pre-filled in your tax return from government agencies, private health funds, financial institutions and companies.

    How to check if your data is available

    When you use pre-fill, information is downloaded straight to your online return using current-year information from organisations reporting to us, such as employers, banks, and other government agencies.

    How to use pre-fill information

    All you have to do is review the pre-filled information and add any missing details.

    Do not rely solely on pre-filled information. The information that is pre-filled to your return may be incomplete if:

    • an organisation has not supplied data yet
    • we could not match the information to your record
    • the information did not pass all data quality checks.

    When is pre-fill information available?

    Pre-filling information is usually available for you to download into your return a couple of days after we receive it from the reporting organisations.

    Most information is normally available by early August.
