Is E Tax Faster Than Lodging By Myself?

Posted by Tax Advisor on 15 July, 2010

For too many Australians, lodging taxes is more of a chore than it needs to be, because they choose to lodge taxes by hand instead of using an e tax service. Some of those people–like the elderly–are just not computer savvy. But others don’t lodge online because they don’t understand how safe, fast, and efficient it is!

E tax lodging not only makes tax time go by a lot quicker, but it also has other added benefits, such as:

  • Being able to check your status. Most e tax programs let you track the status of your forms as they go through the depths of the ATO. This means you have a better idea of when your form was submitted and received (rather than just the day you posted it). This gives you information you can use when you’re investigating why your refund is still not there.
  • E tax is incredibly secure–with the right site. We’re not going to tell you that every single e tax programme out there is 100% secure and safe, but the vast majority of them are. People worry about lodging tax online, but the truth is, as long as you double check the site it’s no more dangerous than the post.
  • E tax saves you money. Lodging tax by yourself, you might not be aware of all the credits, rules, and regulations you qualify for in order to get the most money back. Lodging with a tax agent, you might learn what they are, but with a hefty hit to your wallet. E tax services not only lodge your taxes faster than doing them by hand or with a tax agent, they also help you take advantage of the most credits and refunds!

E tax may not be for everyone, but it’s not going away any time soon. In fact, many countries, states, and municipalities around the world are considering a switch to solely online tax. So instead of calculating your forms out by hand this tax year, consider lodging them online. You’ll be amazed at how much time and money you save!
