  • Individual income tax return profile compare (IITRPRFL)

    The individual income tax return profile compare (IITRPRFL) is an optional service for current-year returns. It allows you to receive real-time messages for your clients regarding income and deductions that are unexpected.

    You can select this service through your software, which will access our operational analytics to see if any of the claims are out of the ordinary.

    An example of the type of message that may be returned is:

    'Your total work-related expenses of $xxx are high compared to others in your occupation with similar income. Please review these amounts, particularly your claims for car and other deductions. (Occupation: xxx)'

    Messaging for clients is available for the following labels:

    • interest income and dividend income
    • work-related expenses
    • cost of managing tax affairs – other expenses incurred
    • other deductions – other (D15)
    • rental interest
    • cost of sales and total expenses for sole traders.

    Note: All labels related to salary and wage income need to be completed for work-related expenses and other deductions responses to be correct.

    Messages are advisory only:

    • receiving a message does not mean a claim is incorrect – it is intended to prompt you to consider unexpected claims that we are more likely to review
    • not receiving a message does not necessarily mean a claim is correct.

    Receipt of a nudge message is not a factor in selection for cases for compliance action. It is the information included on the lodged tax return that informs risk modelling.

    We will monitor use of the system to ensure it is being used in line with its primary intent of highlighting unexpected claims.
