Privacy

The ATO is authorised by the Taxation Administration Act 1953 to request your tax file number (TFN). We will use your TFN to identify you in our records. It is not an offence not to provide your TFN. However, you cannot lodge your income tax form electronically if you do not quote your TFN.

Taxation law authorises the ATO to collect information and to disclose it to other government agencies. For information about your privacy go to ato.gov.au/privacy

Important: The tax law imposes heavy penalties for giving false or misleading information.

The ATO will issue your assessment based on your tax return. However, the ATO has some time to review your tax return, and issue an amended assessment if a review shows inaccuracies that change the assessment. The standard review period is two years but for some taxpayers it is four years.
