This 30-second tour will help you finish your tax return more quickly, with confidence it’s done right.
There’s no ‘save’ button – because you don’t need one.
Select the items you need to enter
There are 3 main sections in your return: INCOME, DEDUCTIONS and OTHER items.
At the top of each section, you click buttons to add sections to your return down below.
Do you have a PAYG? Click the “Salary and wages” button. Then, just scroll down and add your details.
Not sure what to claim?
Etax helps you find tax-deductible items you can claim, to help improve your tax refund.
Do you have a PAYG, health insurance statement or work-related receipts? You can just attach your documents in the relevant section of your tax return.
It works on mobile
You can log in on your mobile, click the “attach” buttons, then snap a photo of a receipt or PAYG and upload it to your return.
Want to review the documents you snapped, but from your laptop? Yes, they’ll all be there when you log in on any device.

Don’t worry. You don’t have to get everything right.
After you sign your return, a qualified accountant will check it, answer your questions and contact you to clarify details if needed (it’s all part of our tax agent service, included in the low tax deductible fee for etax.com.au).
Then, they’ll lodge your return electronically at the ATO to get your refund as fast as possible.
