Tax Returns for first timers

Preparing your tax return can be very stressful, especially if a person is doing it for the very first time. It is not a difficult process but there are couple of guidelines and rules which we should follow to streamline things.

Mentioned below are some tax return tips for first timers:

a) Before you lodge your tax, always make sure you have a tax file number.

b) Check the different options available to lodge the tax such as you can lodge your tax with the help of registered tax agent or there is online service available in ATO, so you can do it by yourself.

To access our online services including myTax, you will need to create a myGov account and link it to the ATO.

To link your account, call the ATO on 13 28 61 and press 5 at the prompt to get your unique linking code to verify your account. In myGov, go to the services page and link to the ATO. Select ‘I have a linking code’ and enter your linking code when prompted.

c) Always keep your receipts of purchases as a proof so that you can easily claim for your work-related expenses. These expenses can be varying according to your job. For example, if you are working as a cleaner, your expenses can include work shoes, laundry expenses, gloves and more.

d) It is possible that you may be a part of the sharing economy without knowing it. So, always declare all the income you are earning.
