“Have just now received a penalty notice for failure to lodge a 2009 income tax return in the sum of $550.
The taxpayer was still at school.
We have applied for remission of penalty. We have notified return not necessary for outstanding returns 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 (as listed on the portal) via the portal.
Can someone please turn off that malfunctioning, non thinking, data matching/data mismatching Neanderthal of a computer system at the ATO – tax matters were more efficient and effective when administration was conducted, and returns processed, manually.”
