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 2022-23 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.

This is a free useful, government-provided alternative to the subscription-based accounting/business expense tracking apps available online. However, it could really do with some more essential features, such as a search function; dark mode, and more different categories for expenses, such as gifts and donations. It could also have a feature that could make it easier to 'reset' your records so that your latest backups don't end up bloated with previous years' content.

Really impressed with the current ATO app. It is very easy to use, has a well thought out layout and I have been able to easily check my tax info on my phone. I like how simple and uncluttered it feels, haven't had any technical issues at all in terms of logging in, or updating my information.

App is good when it works, which is thankfully most of the time. Please allow for proper multi factor authentication to be used on the app, biometrics and SMS codes are not very safe security wise, and I've got mobile dead spots in my house, so not very reliable either. Server too clogged during tax time, which will be a long term issue.
