2017 Tax Returns with 31 October Due Date

If clients have prior year returns overdue, the lodgment due date for their 2017 tax return will show as 31 October on the Tax Agent Portal.

If all outstanding prior year returns are lodged by 31 October 2017, the lodgement program due dates will apply to the 2017 tax return, rather than 31 October 2017

There may be a delay of a few weeks after lodgment for this to be updated on the ATO’s systems.

If practitioners have taken on new clients or have existing clients with overdue obligations, the ATO can help, and offer additional time to lodge for clients with overdue returns to assist getting clients’ obligations up to date.
