    How to report a tax crime

    Help us ensure everyone pays their fair share of tax. Report information on suspected tax crime to the Tax Evasion Reporting Centre on 1800 060 062 or if you are a tax practitioner use Fast Key Code 3 4.

    You can also report online anytime at www.ato.gov.au/reportevasion.

    Making a voluntary disclosure

    We encourage taxpayers who have made a mistake in relation to their tax affairs to make a voluntary disclosure. This can lead to reductions in shortfall penalties and interest, particularly if the voluntary disclosure is made before the notification of an audit.

    Voluntary disclosures can be made in writing, electronically, by phone, or via other methods available in specific circumstances.

    Read full details about how to make a voluntary disclosure.
