  • Prepare for tax time

    To prepare for Tax Time 2022 we recommend you:

    This will ensure your clients' tax returns are correct and will prevent delays in processing.

    The lodgment due dates for your clients will be available in Online services for agents by the end of July 2022.

    We will start full processing of 2021–22 tax returns on 7 July 2022. We expect to start paying refunds from 16 July 2022.

    We aim to finalise most electronically lodged current year tax returns within 12 business days of receipt. See our service commitment.

    When setting up appointments with your clients, remind them to provide the information you need to prepare and lodge their tax returns, including their:

    • personal identification
    • Australian financial institution account details
    • Medicare card or number
    • private health insurance information
    • spouse details, including details of their income.

    This will help prevent delays in processing their return.
