Another year, another tax deadline fast approaching. If you've been putting off doing your tax until now, it's time to bite the bullet and get it done - you only have a week left before you risk getting fined.
The tax deadline for this year is October 31, 2018, so it's time to get cracking! If you're lodging your tax yourself, you'll have to go through MyGov to use the MyTax system - remember it's no longer e-tax, so if you find yourself doing e-tax you're on a third party website.
Find MyTax here - after logging in, navigate to Tax > Lodgments > Income tax and go for your life. The new system pre-fills information the government has been given, making it relatively easy to complete.
If you're lodging through a registered tax accountant, you don't have to meet the tax deadline - however you do have to notify your accountant that you will be lodging through them. If you go through an agent, your deadline will be 15 May 2019 instead.
