Can't remove a selection?

Last updated 6 March 2023

Where we made a selection for you, it is based on the information we have on our records (such as from your last year's tax return) or the information provided to us by various organisations including employers/payers, financial institutions and other government departments. You will not be able to remove the selection but can delete any relevant pre-filled information from the Prepare return screen.

If we made a selection for you but you believe it does not apply to you, it may be because the information was provided to us incorrectly or you may not be aware of how the payment was made to you.


If Business/Sole trader income or loss is pre-selected but you think you are not in business or a sole trader, this may be because the payment was made as business and personal services income instead of employment income which is what you might have expected. You should review the pre-filled information on the Prepare return screen and make any necessary adjustments (if required). If you believe the payment was made incorrectly, contact the payer so they can update their records and provide us with correct information.
