29 May 077 ATO pre-filling initiativesThe ATO advises that pre-filling is a service provided by the ATO to make it easier for agents to complete their clients’ income tax returns. Many organisations are required by law to report taxpayers’ income details and the ATO also has information that can be used to complete clients’ tax returns.
Agents will be able to view their clients’ income details by requesting the pre-filling report which will soon be available in the Tax Agent Portal. The report will be able to be viewed online or downloaded to a personal computer. Agents will be able to:
- review the pre-filled data
- amend the pre-filled data, if necessary, and
- add any missing income details.
