Before we can complete your income tax assessment we want to check if you have other income to tell us about or expenses to claim.

You need to tell about any incorrect or missing information within 45 days.

We then finalise your end of year tax and let you know if you:

  • are due a refund
  • have tax to pay
  • have no tax to pay and are not due a refund.

If you're due a refund we pay this into your bank account from late May.

If you have tax to pay you need to pay it by 7 February. If you have a tax agent you need to pay your tax by 7 April.
