The ATO has advised tax professionals that it has improved the search function on its website.
Some examples of the improvements are:
- Search results can be filtered by the reference to specific areas of the website as well as by current or previous year (more date filtering options will soon be available).
- Relevant ATO definitions are displayed with the search results. This will allow searchers to see where the ATO may have referred to something differently to enable the search to be refined, if necessary.
- The ATO will provide links to other popular information related to the search, where applicable.
- The bottom of the search result page will show related search options.
