The 2014 Tax season is less than two weeks away and we’ve got some big news to share with you…
The Etax.com.au 2014 tax return is improved, better than ever and it’s ready now.
At Etax we live by our motto “making tax easy”. After a huge upgrade for 2014, we hope you’ll agree that we’ve made Australia’s best online tax return even better.
Every year we ask users for suggestions and feedback. Those comments are the basis for our upgrades each year. Sometimes this means developing all-new technology in response to your requests.
Read on to see what’s new and improved…
New features in the Etax.com.au 2014 tax return
1. Completely new online tax return (mobile and tablet friendly)
Many clients told us they wanted a more modern-looking tax return. We agreed! Our 2014 tax return is completely redesigned with a modern look, feel and functionality.
And, it’s mobile and tablet friendly. Use any device with an internet connection to access and complete your tax return.
Here’s how it will look on your mobile phone…
…and on your tablet…
2. Refund estimate updates automatically with each new item added
We’ve refined our refund estimate tool so that each time you enter a new item your refund estimate updates – in real time!
When you enter each new detail or deduction, your estimate will update automatically as you go. Want more details about your refund? Just click the ‘tax refund estimate’ at the top of the screen for a detailed breakdown of your return.
3. Pre-fill your tax return!
Pre-filling means we can automatically add information to your 2014 tax return based on the data the Australian Tax Office has on your file (if available).
Our analysis shows that pre-fill could eliminate up to 80% of the data entry for your return.
This feature will get better over time, because data available from the ATO improves after 15 July.
4. Show the sections you need – skip the rest.
Many of you explained that you didn’t want to see all of the sections in the return. You just wanted to select the sections you need and skip all of the others.
No problem! We’ve radically redesigned our section selector tool allowing you to select and de-select the sections that apply to you, while leaving the others out of your return completely! [hr]
