myTax, the new streamlined internet tax return service designed specifically for individuals with straightforward tax affairs – is now available.
It is available on tablets, smart phones and computers and is expected to be used by up to 1.4 million self-preparers in it’s first year.
You should use myTax if:
- you were an Australian resident for tax purposes from 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014
- your only income was from salary and wages, allowances, bank interest, dividends and/or Australian government payments
- your only deductions are for work-related expenses, expenses relating to income from interest or dividends, gifts and donations and/or the cost of managing your own tax affairs
- your only tax offsets are the seniors and pensioners tax offset, the zone and overseas forces tax offset and/or the private health insurance rebate.
If you have other sources of income, deductions or tax offsets then you should use e-tax.
myTax and e-tax are available for access from MyGov – the online portal for government services.
