  • Tax assistance for people affected by severe weather in New South Wales

    If you have been affected by the recent severe weather throughout NSW, the ATO understands that dealing with your tax affairs is probably the last thing on your mind.

    Your tax obligations can be put to one side until you have dealt with the immediate effects of the disaster – whether you are affected yourself or are helping those affected.

    We can give you more time if you owe us money, are unable to lodge your return or activity statement, or deal with any other correspondence from us.

    If you’re a registered agent, we can give you extra time to deal with your clients affairs, whether you were affected by the disaster, or they were.

    To learn more about the available options and to make the appropriate arrangements, call the ATO disaster assistance phone line on 1800 806 218.
