Due dates for your tax return
If you’re lodging your own tax return, you need to lodge it by 31 October each year.
If 31 October falls on a weekend, the due date to lodge your tax return is the next business day after 31 October.
If you choose to use the services of a registered tax agent, they will generally have special lodgement schedules and can lodge returns for clients later than 31 October. If you are using a registered tax agent, you need to engage them before 31 October.
If you’re having difficulties meeting your tax obligations or are unable to lodge by 31 October, contact the tax office as soon as possible.
If you lodge your own tax return and it results in a tax bill, payment is due by 21 November even if you lodge:
- between 1 July and 31 October
- after the 31 October.
If you have questions in relation to the above, or any other matters, please do not hesitate to contact our office on 1300 620 345.
