1 July marked the first day of the 2017 tax season. This was the first day that the ATO begins accepting tax returns to lodge.

We know that tax can get complicated. Going through the hard work of calculating your income, deductions and offsets seems almost crazy when you can have your taxes done quickly and efficiently with E-Lodge.

With E-Lodge, you’ll spend minutes doing your taxes rather than hours (or days)!

Not only that but why go through the hassle or even travel to an accountant when you can lodge a tax return from your own home. In fact, with E-Lodge you can lodge your 2017 taxes within minutes today!

How do I get started?

Instead of traveling to an accountant, you can lodge your taxes online with E-Lodge. There’s three easy steps involved;

  1. Create an Account: You’ll  need to create an account on E-Lodge. To do so, simply select the tax year from the drop down menu and type your user ID and password of choice.
  2. Enter your tax information: Once you have an E-Lodge account, you’ll need to enter your personal information, income, deductions, and offsets. Don’t have enough time to finish? No worries- you can save your return and sign in to finish at a later point.
  3. Checkout: Once you’ve entered your personal information, the details of your income, and claimed any possible deductions or offsets, you’ll enter your banking information and pay for your tax return. After doing so you’ll be able to submit your tax return.

Easy, huh?
