This 30-second tour explains how to do your tax return quickly, with confidence it’s done right.
Let’s cover the main things that’ll help you finish your tax return.
There’s no ‘save’ button in your Etax return – 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 Etax return. An accountant will check them later and make sure they are entered correctly on your return.
Etax 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. So easy!
You can also use Etax year-round to save tax receipts from your mobile, so you don’t need to keep track of paper receipts and you won’t miss a tax deduction ever again. Just snap those receipts and save them to your Etax account.
Want to review the documents you snapped, but from your laptop? No problem, they’ll be waiting when you log in on any device.
