The online fees of around $90++ for the lodgement instead of paying $120++ if you are going to hire an accountant.

You didn't use etax!! Etax if FREE. You use someone to lodge your tax return which is different to etax from the ATO website.

Here is the site that I used. Most of my Australian co workers used this etax as well. It is way cheaper than most accountants.

That is not the etax we are talking about. We are talking about etax from ATO which is: e-tax | Australian Taxation Office

You did not use etax which requires you have lodged previously to use etax.

If you are just have a simple tax return (salary and wages) there is no reason that you should have to pay someone to do your tax return, you should be able to do it for free using etax from ATO.

That is miss leading and they really shouldn't be allowed to do that

Oh! Didn't realize that there is actually a real "e-tax" since I am new here in Oz as well. Sorry for the mix up guys and thanks for the info! :-)

I know, but unfortunately etax.com.au has been around for longer than the ATO's etax.

There have been stories in the media about it over the years encouraging people not to get them mixed up, but some still do.

Just tried to google 'etax' and guess what the first result is? The ATO site is 2nd.

Exactly! I am really surprised that the ATO allows them to call themselves etax accountants .... very misleading for new immigrants (and residents and citizens who do not know) who do not know that etax is a free.

Maybe we should have a sticky somewhere in the forum about tax returns - I myself wouldn't know where to start, I've never had to do one!
