Are you confident that your tax return is prepared correctly? What if you do it yourself on ATO myTax?
Do you claim all of the tax deductions you’re legally entitled to?
The ATO applies penalties against more than 100,000 taxpayers in a single year. Thousands are formally prosecuted over their tax return.
Across Australia, more than 20,000 ATO employees work every day to enforce 5,743 pages of tax rules. Their job is to collect more tax revenue and to enforce tax laws. The ATO releases new warnings almost every month, about new “compliance priorities” and new triggers that can cause an audit on your taxes.
If you use ATO myTax, you are all alone own deciding, “did I do it right?” And you’re on your own dealing with any ATO problems.
But your tax return can be easy!
Etax.com.au provides online tips and live support, with qualified accountants ready to help you anytime. And you can just attach documents to your return and use live chat to get help with the details.
Finish your tax return online in minutes.
How do most people do their taxes?
Australia’s Inspector-General of Taxation, Ali Noroozi, recently told Members of Parliament,
…I think every citizen is entitled to independent advice. They should not be getting all their advice from the tax office.”

What’s new on the Etax 2017 tax return?
We asked for taxpayers’ feedback and suggestions, then we got to work for 2017:
“Show me what I selected last year”
In 2017 Etax.com.au will show you last year’s deduction selections, saving you time and helping avoid missed deductions (for returning Etax clients). Make sure you re-calculate your claims from last year and you can send us a quick message if you’re not sure.
“Show me what other people (in my type of work) claim as deduction”
After you enter your occupation, your tax return will show you popular tax deduction items used by people with the same type of job as you, helping you remember valuable claims that can boost your tax refund!
“It would be great to have more access to Live Chat when I’m doing my tax return”
Okay – our support team will be ready.
We’ve doubled the size of our live chat accounting team and invested in a brand new chat system to ensure you can receive instant guidance and help from a qualified accountant.
“Make the instructions easier to understand”
We understand that tax return instructions can be a bit hard to understand, so we re-wrote the tricky parts to make them more descriptive for clients. Plus, there’s a ‘basic’ or ‘advanced’ version for most help items.
