  • MyTax


    MyTax is our new streamlined tax return designed specifically for people with straightforward tax affairs. It's available on tablets, smart phones and computers.

    MyTax pre-fills your return with information from your previous tax return and with information provided by your employer, bank, government agencies and others. This information is usually with us by early August, so if you wait until then all you'll have to do is review the information, add any missing details and then select 'submit'.

    You should use myTax if:

    • you were an Australian resident for tax purposes from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014
    • your only income was from salary and wages, allowances, bank interest, dividends and/or Australian government payments
    • your only deductions are for work-related expenses, expenses relating to income from interest or dividends, gifts and donations and/or the cost of managing your own tax affairs
    • your only tax offsets are the seniors and pensioners tax offset, the zone and overseas forces tax offset and/or the private health insurance rebate.

    If you have other sources of income, deductions or tax offsets then you should use e-tax.
