myDeductions tool

Last updated 6 March 2023

If you didn't use the ATO app's myDeductions tool, you can enter your deductions directly into myTax.

If you did use myDeductions, data you upload can be pre-filled into myTax.

If you've started myTax, you can upload your data from the app as follows:

  1. Ensure you have the latest version of the ATO app installed
  2. Open myDeductions in the ATO app
  3. Go to 'Settings'
  4. Select 'Upload to tax return' and complete the process

You can then close the ATO app and return to myTax.

In myTax, expand the 'Did you use the ATO app's myDeductions tool during the year?' panel by selecting the 'How to upload' link.

  1. Select Get myDeductions in the panel to pre-fill your return with your data. myTax will display a message to indicate whether your deductions have been included.

For more information, see myDeductions – FAQs.

If you uploaded your data from the app before you've started myTax, your data will be pre-filled.
