tax time

At the end of this financial year (30 June 2023), you will need to assess your personal circumstances to understand whether you are required to submit a tax return to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). If it’s your first time submitting a tax return in Australia visit the ATO’s new to tax and super page which steps through Australia’s tax system.

The ATO has tax resources in up to 18 languages, and audio guides for first-time tax submitters in Arabic, Cantonese, Dari, Farsi, Filipino, Khmer, Korean, Mandarin, Nepali, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese.

Tax return forms are supplied by the ATO, and you can complete this online, on paper, or get your tax agent or the ATO’s Tax Help Program to help you. Tax returns must be submitted by 31 October 2023, unless you engage with a certified tax agent.
