Request for further lodgement extension

Several professional bodies representing the tax profession wrote to you on 2 April 2020 to request an extension of the lodgement date for a number of income tax returns that have been due for lodgement during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. We were grateful for your response where you granted an extension to lodge all income tax returns for individuals, partnerships, trusts and companies to 5 June 2020. However, we write to you again to ask you to consider further extending this date to 30 June 2020.
