Payments and refunds
The notice of assessment we send you is an itemised account of the amount of tax you owe on your taxable income. It also contains other details that are not part of the assessment, such as the amount of credit you have for tax you have already paid throughout the income year.
When you receive your notice of assessment, check it to make sure everything is correct and matches the details on your tax return.
If you owe tax, the bottom section of your notice of assessment will be your payment advice. If you are due a refund and you did not provide valid Australian bank account details on your return, it will be your refund cheque. You should receive your notice of assessment within about 12 business days if you lodge your return online using e-tax, and about 50 business days if you post it.
If you think something is wrong, you need to tell us and correct it:
If you’re still unhappy with our decision after talking to us, you can object to your assessment by writing to us.
