To link your myGov account to us, you need to answer 2 questions about information in your tax record. This content explains what information you need and where to find it.
Use either a bank account:
- where you receive your income tax refund
- that has earned interest in the last 2 years.
You'll need the bank account:
- BSB number (no spaces or symbols)
- account number (no spaces).
You can usually find this information by logging in to your bank's mobile app, web account or on your bank statement.
If you've lodged your tax return using a tax agent, it may be their bank account details on your ATO record.
If you're unable to provide bank account details, select a different question.
Use a pay as you go (PAYG) payment summary issued in the last 2 years.
You'll need your gross income in whole dollars. Don't use cents, spaces, '$' or symbols.
If you don't have a copy of your summary or don't know your gross income, select a different question.
Use a Centrelink payment summary issued in the last 2 years.
You'll need your taxable income in whole dollars. Don't use cents, spaces, '$' or symbols. If your taxable income is zero, you can't use this question.
You can find these details on the annual statement that Centrelink provides you.
If your myGov account has a link to Centrelink, you can sign in and get the details online.

If the super fund's ABN is not on one of these items or more than one ABN is included, you can look them up at Super Fund LookupExternal Link.
If no money has been contributed to your super account in the last 12 months, your account may be inactive. Use another super account or select a different question.
