17 Dec 1010 More on ATO demanding money to which it is not entitled after issue of amended assessmentsMEMBER 372 writes:
"In reply to Member 369 last week - see 2010 TAXVINE No 50 (10 December 2010) - I wish to advise that I too have had an Amended Return Assessment issue with PAYG credits missing. My client went from a refund situation in original assessment (which had already been refunded to him) to a pay situation upon assessment of amended return. Yes, I rang the ATO and they admitted it was their error. Of course, they will take 30 days to issue another amendment - and hopefully the problem will be sorted.
It appears that this problem could be endemic to the ATO's new system - so watch out!"
