This tax time the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is warning taxpayers to keep an eye out for people posing as tax agents who are not registered with the Tax Practitioners Board (TPB). Unregistered preparers often use a taxpayer’s personal login details to access their ATO Online account through myGov to lodge tax returns. A legitimate tax agent will never ask for your myGov credentials – they use dedicated ATO online services to lodge tax returns for their clients
The ATO has prepared some handy factsheets that provide tips on what to look out for when lodging your tax return. These have been translated into the below languages - please click on the images/links to access the factsheets.
