Can't remove a selection?

Last updated 27 June 2018

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 pre-filled information that is not relevant to you 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.

Example - Business payment summary

The Business/Sole trader income or loss may be pre-selected if you received payments made:

  • under a voluntary agreement
  • under a labour-hire arrangement, or
  • that are other specific payments.

Whilst you may think you are not in business or a sole trader, 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.
