19 Feb 09 Tax bonus - lodgment deferrals

In a broadcast message to tax agents on 18 February 2009, the Commissioner, Michael D’Ascenzo, said:

"I have granted an extension to 30 June 2010 for the lodgment of 2007-08 returns for people who would be entitled to a tax bonus but for the fact that they or their agent are unable to lodge their return by 30 June 2009 because of one or more of the circumstances listed below:

  • your client was directly involved in, and experienced significant hardship or trauma as a result of a natural disaster (specifically, a bushfire, cyclone, earthquake or flood), or they actively participated in the emergency response to the natural disaster
  • you were unable to prepare and lodge your client’s return as a result of the direct impact of the natural disaster on you, or
  • you or your client suffered an injury or illness (not connected with the natural disaster) resulting in hospitalisation for a period exceeding two weeks.
I have also granted a general lodgment and payment deferral for all unlodged 2007–08 company, trusts, partnerships and superannuation fund returns that would be due on 15 May 2009 to a new due date of 5 June 2009. A blanket deferral past 5 June would have significant revenue implications for the 2009 year...The lodgment deferral options will automatically be applied and you do not need to apply."
