Tax help for people affected by bushfires

Tax help for people affected by bushfires

The ATO has assured people directly affected by bushfires that their refunds will be fast tracked and that they will have additional time to lodge tax returns and activity statements. Specifically, for people in affected suburbs ( eg: Stoneville and Parkerville, Western Australia (Postcode 6081) – check the ATO’s website for additional postcodes) the ATO will automatically defer the lodgment and payment dates ( excluding large PAYG withholders ):

  • For income tax returns due between January and March 2014 and;
  • For activity statements due in January, February or March 2014;

unitl 28th April 2014.

People outside of the identified postcodes that have been impacted by the disaster are still able to contact the ATO for assistance on 1800 806 218, and they will make arrangements on a case-by-case basis.

The ATO can also provide more time for people to pay tax debts and can help reconstruct tax records where documents have been destroyed.


People donating up to $10 to ‘bucket appeals’ and other disaster relief funds this financial year will be able to claim a tax deduction without a receipt.
