I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Ashley from ezytaxback for providing such excellent service! She was super efficient! I would highly recommend ezytaxback to anyone who wants a fast and incredibly easy way to lodge your return.


These guys are great!!!I’m totally baffled when it comes to money and tax but Ashley at has been amazing. I had a myriad of question, most probably totally obvious to anyone with basic computer and money skills, but Ashley was unfailingly patient throughout. Ashley answered all my questions and went above and beyond in helping me successfully lodge my tax return.


When I first used, I thought that it was going to take time to process everything and gave it try as a risk but I was surprised by the professionalism that occurred where the accountants were able to identify all my information from the ATO and they did everything for me. It was fast and efficient, I did not have to worry about signing any documents and scanning them.


It has been a very positive and pleasant experience dealing with you. Easy as pie to fill out the initial questionnaire; much less time-consuming than filing the return myself. Also very nice to see a $200 reduction in tax debt! I would be happy to recommend your service to friends and family. Thanking you kindly


What is Income?

Employment income-

In this section you should include all the income you have received from your employer throughout the 2019 financial year. Your group certificate should have all your total employment income. Employers should send you a group certificate by by email or by letter. Otherwise, if your employer has set up STP Single Touch Payroll, you can access your PAYG summary online via the MyGov website which will have your total gross taxable income as well as tax withheld for the year-end. 

Government pensions/allowances

If you received any income from the Australian Government such as Youth Allowance or Parental Leave Pay you should enter this amount for a more accurate result as both payments are not exempt from income tax and therefore should be included apart of your taxable income.

On the other hand, if you received Carer Adjustment payments or Veterans’ Affairs disability pension, these payments are exempt taxable income payments and you should not enter this into the tax calculator when calculating your refund amount.

You can find out whether your government payments are taxable or not via your MyGov account which will have your annual statements ready for you to access & will include any tax withheld during the year also which you should enter in the opposing field on the tax calculator page.

To note: Opposed to our online tax calculator page, when you are filling out our online tax form to provide all income you received during the year, even tax-exempt income as per above as we can sort through what is and what isn’t taxable, us humans are one-up on the calculator in this instance!

Dividend income and franking credits

This is pretty straight-forward and includes income such as dividends, interest earned, franking credits and the like.  You can obtain your total annual income earned by logging on to your online account if your provider has this service and if you’ve opted for paperless banking, go you!, or else you should receive a letter in the mail in the coming week or so with your annual statement, otherwise if you can’t wait you can contact your chosen financial institution directly.

All other income

This section is where you should include income from sources such as foreign income, net sole trader income and net rental property income after expenses paid.
