About this app

The ATO app allows you to manage your tax and super affairs on the go – making tax simple & easy.

A myGov account linked to the ATO is required for a personalised tax and super experience.

With the ATO app, you can:
- follow your 2021-22 tax return from start to finish, including checking prefill information, tracking the progress of your return and its outcome
- view in real-time when lodgments and payments are due, and seamlessly action them via ATO Online
- set up streamlined and secure login using your device’s security features like face and fingerprint recognition
- view your tax accounts, with links to ATO Online to view transactions, create payment plans or pay
- see an overview of your super balance and accounts
- view your employment income and superannuation contributions required from your employers
- check your personal, business (sole traders only) and registered agent’s details
- access our most popular tools.

Our most popular tools include:
- myDeductions: record your work expenses as an employee or sole trader. Sole traders can also record income. At tax time you can easily upload your myDeductions records to your tax return or email a copy to your tax agent.
- Tax withheld calculator: calculate the amount of tax to withhold from salary and wage payments.
- ABN Lookup: search for an Australian business number (ABN).
- Business performance check: compare your business with similar businesses in your industry using the latest Small business benchmarks.

The ATO app can automatically send usage data to help improve the app. The data we collect doesn’t identify you and you can choose to turn this off at any time in your app’s settings.

GPS can be used to record trips in myDeductions. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

The myDeductions feature is fantastic! Helps me keep track of all of my donations and receipts effortlessly; as well as upload the summary directly into my tax return at the end of the financial year. Backup to the email cloud is also very valuable.

I was previously using this app on my old phone to track my vehicle kilometers, but since changing phones I can no longer add trips to that vehicle? When checking vehicle settings, my vehicle is still saved to the app, but only general expenses appear in the myDeductions screen. Please let me know how I can fix this and I'll make this review 5 stars!

As has been previously mentioned 'MyDeductions' should be displayed on the first page of the app so it's easily updated rather than having to go into 'More' and 'Tools and calculators' in order to add an expense. Either that or create a standalone app or shortcut to the MyDeductions section that can be added to the home screen.

Hi JJ, thanks for the message. There is already a shortcut to myDeductions on the first page you see when you open the app. You can access it from the bottom left quick link on the ATO app home screen just below the login button. As myDeductions records are stored on your device you don't need to log in to use this feature. Thanks, Kim.
