Why not use the ATO’s basic tax refund calculator?

The ATO’s online tax calculator is a basic program that calculates an approximate or ‘ball park’ refund. The ATO’s calculator does not properly account for the Medicare levy and may provide an estimate that’s higher than your actual refund.

It is risky to pay attention to simplified or artificially high tax refund estimates. Instead, you should try to use an accurate tax return calculator so you’ll know how much to expect from the ATO. (Australia’s favourite online tax return) includes a live tax calculator that updates automatically based on each piece of information you enter, ensuring an accurate, personalised tax refund estimate.

You will then receive an accountant-checked final estimate. If any details or claims have changed, your final estimate may differ from the automated tax return calculator’s estimate (but the final figure prior to lodgement will be the most accurate possible estimate).

To start using the tax return calculator, you need to register and start your online tax return.
