• If you think an assessment is wrong

    If you believe an assessment is incorrect because you fund reported your surchargeable contributions incorrectly, ask your fund to correct the error.

    If you think a:

    • superannuation contributions surcharge assessment is incorrect – you, or your fund, may object to the assessment within 60 days of receiving the notice
    • termination payments surcharge assessment is incorrect – you may object to the assessment within 60 days of receiving the notice.

    For your objection to be valid, it must:

    • be in writing – send us a letter or use the standard objection form
    • be lodged within 60 days of receiving an assessment, unless you requested an extension of time
    • state fully and in detail the reason you think the decision is incorrect
    • contain a declaration that information in the objection and supporting documents is true and correct
    • be signed and dated.
