Avoiding delays when lodging your tax return this year could be quite challenging because of the ongoing pandemic.
Moreover, you can still lodge your tax return electronically until 31 October 31 or 15 May 2021 if you are using the service of a specialist tax accountant.
Before you start lodging your tax return, make sure you have everything covered to avoid delays. You should also make sure that you are aware of all the COVID-related deductions that you can claim.
On the flip side, take note that the ATO can sometimes delay the processing of your tax return, especially if you have old overdue tax returns to lodge.
The normal processing will only continue once you get your tax affairs up to date. If you want to save time, hiring a tax accountant is recommended when taking care of outstanding tax returns.
With the lifting of the lockdown restrictions, accountants are permitted to open their offices to accommodate their clients. However, with stringent social distancing guidelines still in effect, professional service firms do not have access to their offices.
