Etax Australa : Etax 2018-19-20 Australia
Etax or e-tax was software which was used by Australians to lodge their income tax returns with Australian Taxation office. It was started sometime in the year 2000 and now it is replaced with myTax. Etax Australia became very popular since it replaced traditional system of paper lodgment. It was the first method of e-filing tax returns by customers themselves. Under 2020 E-tax, customers had to download etax software and then enter all the information – name, tax file no, address, bank details, all types of income – salary, bank interest, business income, rental income and various deductions and offsets. There was an option of pre-filling the data which means that you can import the income from Tax office system once security checks are done by etax software. People learned a lot about tax returns and various deductions/ offsets since there were only 2 methods of lodgment before introduction of etax 2020– one was paper lodgment and other was electronic lodgment by a registered tax agent. Tax office spent millions of dollars to introduce.
