    End of attention

    There are a number of initiatives administered by the Tax Office which complement self-assessment. Examples include:

    • if you take reasonable care with your tax affairs, you will not receive a penalty for honest mistakes - but please note that an interest charge on omitted income or over-claimed deductions and tax offsets could still be payable
    • the process for applying for private rulings
    • your entitlement to interest on early payment or over-payment of a tax debt
    • the process for applying for an amendment if you find you have left something out of your tax return.
