You can check the progress of your tax return at any time using the ATO app, or in ATO online services accessed through your myGov account.
Once you’ve logged in you might see:
This means we have your tax return and we’re processing it.
We’re checking to make sure everything is right. You don’t need to do anything. We’ll contact you if we need more information.
- Balancing account
We’re balancing your accounts with us and other government departments before we calculate your refund, or the amount you need to pay.
Remember most tax returns take about 2 weeks to be processed. We can’t speed this up even if you phone us.
