The longer your tax returns remain outstanding, the higher chance you have of receiving an ATO penalty. These are especially likely if:
- you have more than one tax return outstanding
- you have a poor lodgment history, or
- you have not complied with a request to lodge your tax return.
Furthermore, the ATO may issue a default assessment warning letter. This letter will summarise the income on which the default asse
ssment may be based. The letter will also tell you the date by which you must lodge the overdue return if you want to avoid being issued with a default assessment.
We Can Help!
Most of our clients have had their penalties waved and received their full refund. We have also negotiated generous payment plans in cases where tax is paid. We try our best to ensure that no matter when our clients lodge, they receive the maximum refund they’re entitled to.
Most working Australians need to lodge their tax return each year, with some exceptions. Unlodged tax returns can attract a costly penalty by the ATO. It is therefore very important that your tax agent has satisfied your tax obligations, and you are up to date with your tax return.
We take our fee from your refund, so you pay nothing upfront. This billing method is popular with clients who don’t wish to divulge credit card details online. Our accountants also guarantee the maximum returns on all of our tax refunds, so you know you’re getting the best deal.
