Lodge your tax return online with Etax and get your return done with minimum effort and, when you use a good online tax return service like us, your tax refund usually receives a boost too!
Why choose Etax when doing your tax return online?
Anything to do with tax is complicated, so, you’d think that choosing an online tax agent to lodge your tax return would be too. Good news is, it’s not. You just need to tick a few boxes and cross a few others. It narrows down your search considerably.
Start by thinking about what you expect from an online tax return service. Etax does all of these, and we do them well!
- Access real qualified accountants how you want, when you want. Tax is tricky so it’s good to know there is a human on the phone, email or on live chat, if needed.
- The best possible refund. You want comfort that you’re getting the maximum tax refund, but your tax return also needs to be correct, so you don’t end up in trouble with the ATO for over claiming.
- An online tax agent who puts your security and peace of mind first. Be completely confident that your information and communications are 100% safe and secure.
- Any fees you pay are reasonable. A free service, like the ATO’s myTax does not aim to get you a good refund, nor make sure your return is correct. You also shouldn’t expect to pay hundreds of dollars in fees which eat into your tax refund. The small fee you pay for the Etax online tax return service is always worth it (and it’s tax deductible).
Now think about what you DO NOT want when you lodge your tax online
- If anyone offers you your tax refund today, it’s almost always too good to be true. This is not an instant refund from the ATO, instead it’s a loan from a private business and it could mean big trouble down the track! (Read about Instant Tax Refunds)
- If the online service asks you to email documents, receipts or other personal information – DON’T use them. Email is NOT secure and if your sensitive information, like your tax file number, address and other details are intercepted, someone could use them to steal your identity!
- A poor reputation. Check out the reviews of any online tax return service before you decide to use them. Do they have reviews on multiple review sites, how many people are happy with their service, how do they address things if something goes wrong?
- Finally, if a tax return online service is new, be careful. Just because they have a cool website, it doesn’t always mean their service can back it up. Check their reviews and what kind of security they have in place. Do they do proper identity checks, have a secure portal for transferring documents, and do they send secure messages, so all your communications are private?
Covid forced lots of tax agents to move their businesses online, but it takes years of planning, ATO approvals and IT development to create a genuinely secure, fully functionable and integrated online tax return.Ken Thomas | General Manager | Etax Accountants
