Only recently The Canberra Times carried a report of a tax office worker who had not prepared a tax return, even though there are in the tax office, numerous messages sent to staff, to remind them to lodge their returns.
There are also messages on the Tax Office website, indicating that a late lodgement penalty may be applied, and tax agents offering their services in preparing late tax returns.
The tax Office keeps a list of all interest from bank accounts, even though previously, they only required information where accounts attracted interest of over $100.

And next year will probably get our tax return prepared a little earlier.
Does anyone use an accountant for this purpose. ??
