Too late to lodge your tax return?

(Using our online tax return preparation service, ezTax, can prevent late lodegment problems)

It's never too late to lodge your tax return.

The ATO widely publicises the 31 October lodgement deadline and potential late lodgement penalties. However, the deadline is not so critical in some circumstances:

  1. Where there is a refund due - the ATO will generally remit any late lodgement penalties
  2. If the taxpayer self lodged the previous year and has registered with a tax agent by 31 October he/she will automatically be subject to the tax agents lodgment program and applicable deferred lodgment dates.
  3. If the taxpayer lodged through a different tax agent the previous year he/she can register with a new tax agent any time after 31 October and the lodgement deferal dates applicable to the previous tax agent will carry over to the new tax agent.
