Your employer will provide you with your end of year statement as either:
- an income statement – if your employer reports to us through Single Touch Payroll (STP)
- a payment summary – if your employer is not yet reporting through STP they will continue to provide you with a payment summary by 14 July.
Your employer should let you know if you will receive an income statement or payment summary. You should talk to them if you are unsure.
Your employer doesn't have to give you a payment summary if they report through STP.
Your income statement is available to access through ATO online services through myGov or the ATO app. If you don't have a myGov account, you will need to create a myGov account and link it to the ATO.
Most employers have until 14 July to finalise their data. Your employer will let you know if there are any delays in the finalisation of your income statement.
If you have more than one employer
If you have more than one employer, you may receive both an income statement and a payment summary. You will need to check that income from your payment summary is in your tax return. Your payment summary details may pre-fill for you if you lodge online, otherwise you need to enter it manually.
For a PDF summary of how to access your income statement, see Single Touch Payroll for employees.
If your income statement information is incorrect, you should contact your employer (or employers). If they have made an error, they can usually correct it.
Find out what you can do if you have a lost or missing or incorrect payment summary.
If your employer is reporting through STP, you will receive an income statement.
You can find your income statement in ATO online services through myGov or the ATO app.
Your income statement will show your year-to-date:
- salary and wages
- tax that has been withheld
You will need to wait until your employer marks your income statement as 'Tax ready' before you prepare and lodge your tax return.
Employers have until 14 July to finalise their data.
It is important that you don't use any information that is not marked 'Tax ready' as your employer may finalise your income statement with different amounts.
If you lodge before the statement is 'Tax ready', you may have to amend your tax return.
We will send a notification to your myGov inbox when all of your income statements are 'Tax ready'.
You will need to speak to your employer if after 31 July your income statement is not Tax ready in ATO online services.
