Late or Overdue Tax ReturnsLate or Overdue Tax Returns

Penalties could apply.

Some people may have forgotten to lodge a tax return or been too busy or it just hasn’t been a priority but whatever the reason for not lodging, the Taxation Office will require you to lodge a return every year if your income is over a certain threshold.

If you have not lodged for some years you may receive a letter from the Taxation Office requesting you to lodge all outstanding returns or, before that happens you may just want to get your affairs in order.  As the Taxation Office has the ability to charge penalties for late lodgement of taxation returns it is in your interest to complete any outstanding returns.  Any penalty will only increase as more interest is applied each year.  We can assist you to get up to date if you have not lodged a prior year’s tax return.  Also we would apply to the Taxation Office to reverse any, or some of the penalties and interest.
