Has anyone had any joy using the ATO progress of return tool online?

ATO Progress of Return Link

I've just entered both mine and DHs TFNs only to get a message saying they can't find them in the system. We did our tax with our agent on July 2nd so would have expected something by now (and am waiting on assessments so we can apply for a land loan etc etc).

So I was wondering if the tool was working for anyone or whether I should be chasing my tax agent to see if they have even lodged our returns yet?

Thanks

I lodged online on the 11th, it took a couple of days to show that it had been received. Since then it's been telling me that my tax return was received on 11th July, but that's about it.

I think I'd be chasing the agent if I was you.

Ok that's my worry - it says they have received nothing.

I called our tax agent - who says it was submitted 15 days ago electronically. I had to press her and press her to even get her to agree to ring to even see if they have received anything. Oh and I'm not the first to call with the same issue - I'm just the onlyone to press the issue.

Waiting on a call back. Ugh!

Why is it the year you want to assessment back (not even the money specifically, just the piece of paper that goes with it) quickly is there year it gets stuffed about?

Tax agent spoke to ATO who has confirmed they really do have our assessments and can't explain the electronic responses.

As long as they have them at least!

I just checked mine and it says it was received yesterday and I did my tax on Monday, I think it maybe a quick turn around this year.

DH's says it was received on the 18th of July

However mine says i has been received but not yet procesed.

I did mine on the 14th and DH's on the 18th.

It says if DH has not received it by 18th of August they will contact him.

DH's income showing on centrelink, but not mine...... sad.gif

For me it says it was received on the 10th and is being processed. A NOA arrived in the post yesterday. I gather the tool isn't all that accurate.

Just an update for my tax return.

There had been no change for a while now, but today I noticed the actual income has gone through to Centrelink and so now the ATO progress report says my return was processed on the 14th.

DP's return has hit his bank account, so it was 8 days from submission.

Now to wait for the supps....

It might not work if you lodge through a tax agent...

Besides, your tax agent will be able to look up to see when the ATO received it & processed it.

As a guide though, all accountants were sent a fax on 30th June advising us that the returns would not start to be processed until 5th July & refunds released from 13th July.

Ours says this...

Your return was received on the 21st of July.

Most lodgments submitted electronically are processed within 12 business days of receipt, however some lodgments require manual processing and may take up to 30 calendar days to issue.

So does this mean it has been lodged? or will we get another update before it hits the bank acc?

It means it has been lodged.  But it may not be processed yet.

If you have an online account with centrelink you can check your actual income for the 11-12 year and if it is updated with the actual income then your tax return has been processed.

DPs income was showing in centrelink for about a week before it hit his bank account.  Mine is showing tonight so it shouldnt be too far away.

I received my return a week and a half ago, and the POR site is still showing as my tax has been received, and that it could be up to 30 days before a refund comes through.....

Where do you find the income on the centrelink page?

The only thing I can see is the 'income and assets' tab which just asks about advising parental income.

#24 nothingbutpink

Nope actual income is not yet showing up. thanks for your help.

Click on the family assistance tab and then Family Income history, then select 2011-2012 and it in there.
