A strong voice and strong support for Victorian Landcare
If you’ve been impacted by these bushfires, we understand that your priority is on your family and community at this time, tax affairs can be sorted out at a later stage.
If you live in one of the identified impacted postcodes, the ATO will automatically defer any lodgements or payments you have due. You, or your agent, don't need to apply for a deferral – it will be automatically applied. Income tax, activity statement, SMSF, FBT and excise return lodgements, and their associated payments, will be deferred until 28 May 2020.
If you've been affected by this disaster but your postcode is not in the current postcodes list, don't worry. You can phone our Emergency Support Infoline on 1800 806 218 for help.
