    Lodge with a tax agent

    You can use a registered tax agent to prepare and lodge your tax return for you. Registered tax agents are the only people allowed to charge a fee to prepare and lodge your tax return.

    Most registered tax agents have special lodgment schedules and can lodge returns for their clients later than the usual 31 October deadline.

    You can find a registered tax agent, or check whether a person is a registered tax agent, at the Tax Practitioners Board website www.tpb.gov.auExternal Link
