What’s the Easiest Way to Lodge my 2019 Tax Return?

Every year the  ATO releases new tax products, and last year they made eTax for Mac’s, which turned out to be broken and full of problems from the beginning. This year it’s myTax, and even this has been under a large amount of scrutiny of late, with several large security issues for its users. This is being tested, and used in combination with eTax, however with several security issues found earlier in the year for myGov, many people will be wary of it’s suitability to their needs and it’s ability to maximise their refund.

There are so many options, which can make it quite confusing, and overwhelm many people. Even those with basic tax returns. What are the options? Why is Refund Express the best, and how can you get the best outcome to get you the best possible outcome?

Everyone likes the idea of a Free Tax Return, but free doesn’t always get you what you sign up for. The ATO doesn’t make these things for free, and expect you to benefit to the maximum of the law your allowed. The ATO is the Tax Collection office, it’s primary job is to ensure people are paying their fair share. Most Australians pay to use a Registered Tax Agent to do their Tax Returns to make sure they’re getting their share of the money they’re entitled to under the legislation created. So does a ‘Free Tax Return’ really get you the best outcome at the end of the day? It’s your call, but we’re skeptical of anything that is made to make the process more difficult like eTax. Etax Tax Return system can be extremely frustrating for users, and that’s why we created Refund Express.

It’s a Trap (Admiral Ackbar)

The Tax Law is a complex area to understand. Its what we do for a living! We’re here to look after you, and your interests in order to take the worry out of the process.  The ATO targets different groups of people in order to audit them. and this year they are planning to match over 640 million transactions in 2013-14. Last financial year, the ATO undertook 450,000 reviews, and audits of individuals. It used data matching to raise $973 million in Tax Revenue from individuals being Audited.

Who uses Tax Agents like Refund Express?

Almost anyone can. and most Australians do. Because most Australians still trust their Registered Tax Agents to prepare their Tax Return correctly. and should Trust them more then the Governments “free Tax Return” options.

Refund Express Australia is an Australia Owned and Australian Run business.  We hire Aussies to support, and look after your Tax Return information.

When you Can Claim a GST Credit

You must be registered for GST to claim GST credits.

You can maintain a credit for any GST included in the price you pay for things that you use in your business. This is called a GST credit (or input-tax credit, a credit for the tax included in the price of your business inputs).

You claim GST credits in your activity statement.

You can claim GST credits if the following four conditions apply:

  • you aim to use your purchase solely or partly in carrying on your business and the purchase does not communicate to making input-taxed supplies
  • the purchase price included GST
  • you provide, or are liable to provide, payment for the item you purchased
  • You have a tax invoice from your supplier (for purchases more than $82.50).

You cannot claim a GST credit:

  • without a valid tax invoice
  • for purchases that do not have GST in the price
  • for wages you pay to staff (there is no GST on wages)
  • For motor vehicles priced above a certain limit.

Goods and services that don’t have GST in their price include:

  • GST-free items (such as basic foods)
  • Input-taxed items (such as bank fees and loan interest)
  • Purchases from a business that is not registered for GST (and therefore cannot charge GST).

When you can’t claim GST credit

You also cannot maintain GST credits for the following, even if GST is included in the price:

  • purchases you intend to use for private or domestic purposes
  • purchases you intend to use to make input-taxed supplies, such as those associated with providing residential accommodation
  • some purchases that you can’t claim as an income tax deduction, such as entertainment expenses
  • Land purchases under the margin scheme.

Senior Australians – Tax Offsets

Mature age workers, seniors and pensioners may be eligible for tax offsets. If you are a short income earner, you may be entitled for an offset and, if your medical expenses pass the threshold limit, you may be entitled for the medical expenses tax offset too. You may also be eligible for an offset if you receive earnings from a superannuation income stream

If you are a Senior Australian, you may be entitled for the seniors and pensioners tax offset.

The seniors and pensioners tax offset (SAPTO) can decrease the amount of tax you are liable to pay. In some cases, this offset may reduce your tax liability to zero and you may not have to lodge a tax return.

To be eligible for this tax offset, you have to meet certain conditions connecting to your income and eligibility for an Australian Government pension.

If you are a senior, you must meet the age requirement for the Age pension to be eligible for the offset.

In some cases, you may also be able to move your eligible spouse’s unused SAPTO to you. We calculate their transfer amount available and include this amount when calculating your SAPTO.

If you have reached the age pension age, the seniors and pensioners tax offset lets you earn more money before you must pay tax or the Medicare levy. There are a range of eligibility circumstances which relate to age, income, and eligibility for Australian government pensions or allowances.

Australian Taxation Office And MyGov Account

From late March 2015, the Australian Tax assessment Office (ATO) made it conceivable to interface a person’s myGov2018 record to their ATO account.

In this event that you have connected your ATO record to your myGov18 account the dominant part of your ATO letters and reports will come specifically to your myGov18 inbox, instead of through the post or to your expense operator. You will be advised by email or SMS, contingent upon your picked settings, that there is another message in your inbox.

Your assessment operator won’t be informed that they are being sent specifically to you, nor get a duplicate by post. On the off chance that you would incline toward your archives to go straightforwardly to your expense operator you should unlink your myGov18 account as takes after:

1. Go to your myGov account
2. Go to the Administrations page
3. Select the unlink symbol by the administration you wish to evacuate.

Sometimes it creates a lot of confusion and you need some professional help for your assessment, after all this is the mater of financials and your tax refund, it’s worth paying money to professionals rather than doing it by ourselves where the chances for errors are big.

If you have done something wrong with your tax return, it might become a headache for us as ATO and your return has been linked up with other authorities such as centre link, family tax benefits etc.

Check if workers are employees or contractors

It’s important to check whether your workers are employees or contractors, as your tax, super and other government obligations are different depending on whether the working arrangement is employment or contracting.

If you get it wrong and fail to meet your obligations, you risk having to pay penalties and charges.

Engaging a new worker

Before you enter into a work agreement or contract with a worker, you need to check whether the arrangement you’re planning to enter is one of employment or contracting.

You should check every time you engage a new worker, unless the working arrangement is identical to that of another worker which you’ve already checked.

Unless it’s exactly the same working arrangement, including the specific terms and conditions under which the work is performed, there could be a different outcome in relation to whether the worker is an employee or contractor. Minor variations in working arrangements can result in different outcomes.

If you have not checked for existing workers

If you’ve previously engaged a worker without checking our information about whether the arrangement is employment or contracting, you should review your earlier decision now to make sure you got it right.

For example, if you made the decision to treat your worker as a contractor because they have an Australian business number (ABN) or specialist skills or you only need them during busy periods, you need to review this earlier decision now. None of these things will make a worker a contractor. They may instead be an employee.

If you’ve engaged a worker incorrectly (such as engaging them as a contractor when they are an employee) you’ll need to meet the correct tax and super obligations for the worker from their start date, not just from when you identified the mistake.
