The government has announced that the ATO has joined myGov: Acting Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Human Services joint media release 6 May 2014.
myGov is a single Australian Government online account designed to provide better services and information. It replaces the australia.gov.au account.
myGov provides Australians with a quick and easy way to access online government services using a single log on.
Australians can now link the ATO’s online services to their myGov account and will soon be able to complete myTax or e-tax using myGov as their authentication.
The ATO’s online services also allows people to complete a range of transactions, including updating personal details, keep track of their super, arrange to pay a debt and check the progress of their income tax return.
If you want to use the ATO’s online services you’ll need to create a myGov account and link to the ATO, or if you already have a myGov account, simply link the ATO as one of your member services.
