Ms Anderson said the Rockingham kiosk was the “perfect opportunity” to learn about the ATO’s online lodgement tool, myTax.

The tool is available to anyone who wants to lodge their tax return in a simplified, digital format.

“In addition to online tax lodgements, we also have a range of other online services to help people manage their tax and super affairs, including our myDeductions tool in the ATO app,” Ms Anderson said.

MyDeductions allows you to snap, save and store your individual income tax deductions in one convenient place. It is a great way to keep track of your expenses without having to worry about lost and faded receipts.”

Ms Anderson said that the ATO’s digital services also provide a variety of other benefits.

“You can manage a range of personal financial information using our online services, available via myGov. It’s easy to lodge and revise activity statements, find and manage your super, and view your study and training support loan account balance.”

“Our staff will be able to show you how to set up a myGov account and link to the ATO in order to access our latest digital products and services.”
