Object to an ATO decision

Outlines how to object to most decisions we make about your tax and super obligations and entitlements.

Briefly outlines when to consider objecting to a decision we have made about your tax or superannuation affairs.

You can object to tax assessments and most other decisions we make, but there are time limits for submitting objections.

There are decisions the law does not allow you to object to, however there are other ways to dispute these decisions.

An objection must be lodged in writing (on our form or in a letter) within the time limit. There is no fee.

When we receive an objection, we review the facts and evidence you give and come to a decision.
