MyTax – making it easy for sole traders

If you are a sole trader looking for a quick, easy, safe and secure way to lodge your tax online, myTax could be the answer.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has replaced e-tax with myTax, a web-based online tool - so there is no need for you to download any programs or software to your device. Being web-based, it’s always available which makes it easy to lodge from your computer, smartphone or tablet at a time convenient to you.

You will need a myGov account to login to myTax however, but setting up a myGov account is easy at the myGov website.

Visit the ATO’s website to find out more information about how you can lodge online as an individual or sole trader.
