Tax Office Computer Shutdown/Upgrade

The Tax Office’s computer systems will be unavailable from Friday, 22 January until Wednesday, 27 January 2010 while a new computer system is implemented.

In addition, the ATO will need to suspend some processing in the weeks leading up to the implementation. There will also be some processing delays in the weeks following the implementation as the new system gradually returns to full processing levels which could continue during February 2010.

Lodgements will be affected for large businesses due to lodge their income tax return on 15 January 2010 should lodge no later than 7 December 2009. This will increase the likelihood of these more complex returns being processed and a refund issuing prior to the suspension of processing.
