Due Dates for Lodging Individual Tax Returns

For every financial year ending on 30th June, the deadline to lodge the tax return is 31st October. Thus, you have a period of four months to lodge your return. For example, for the tax return 2020, the due date shall be 31st October 2020.
If due to any unavoidable reason you feel that you would not be able to lodge your return by 31st October then you can seek for an extension by sending a written notice to the ATO before the said deadline.

Lodge Tax Return with a Registered Tax Agent

There is a special privilege that the registered tax agents enjoy regarding the deadline. They are registered for a special lodgement program which allows them to file the tax returns of their clients after the normal deadline of 31st October.  The due date might vary according to your circumstances and you can consult your tax agent for the same.

The tax agents are required to be registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB) and if you are planning to select a registered tax agent for your tax returns then you may get in touch with Auditax as we meet the eligibility criteria for a registered tax agent. We will help you lodge your returns with the ATO within the prescribed deadline so that you do not incur any penalty. We can guide you about ways in which you can save taxes taking a legal recourse. That is what tax planning is all about!

Lodging Prior Years’ Individual Tax Returns

In case, you have an overdue tax return for any of the previous years, then it is important that you lodge the same without any further delay. Lodging overdue tax returns attract penalty from the AO which may range from $210 to $1,050 for a small entity.

For filing an overdue tax return, you need to appoint a tax return accountant as it can’t be filed by an individual on his own. You can also communicate with the ATO to request for remission of the penalty. The ATO may at his discretion allow the remission of the penalty based on the facts and the amount of penalty.

Auditax has a team of tax return accountants who could help you file your overdue tax returns for the prior years and get in touch with the ATO on your behalf for the remission of penalties.
