delayed Spouse visa 309 - Need Help!! problems due to Tax returns

Hi All,

I had claimed tax in previous years by showing the defacto and it was done in complete ignorance in previous years and purely for tax return purposes. Recently I have got married and have lodged spouse visa 309 for my wife. I was asked to provide the explanation why information in the form 47SP differs from the information I provided to the ATO as I have claimed the tax rebate for showing defacto.

After receiving this email, I replied my CO that my tax returns had been inaccurate and I would amend my tax returns of last two years. I did that and also paid off the over claimed amount with interest to ATO. Initially when I applied for tax amendments, I attached the scanned copies of my tax amendment forms where I have clearly mentioned that "I had no spouse or defacto in the past and it was purely an error" in the email to my CO. and also sent the NOA in the second email to my CO when I received it from ATO.

Now, after a month, I have received an email from my CO asking that who did I claim the tax offset for and what was my relationship with her?

Now I have already mentioned in my amendment forms that I have never been into spouse or defacto relationship and it was done by mistake. not sure what else to say which can answer my CO's question this time. or even I am not sure whether they are looking for any other information from me. As I claimed the spouse tax rebate purely for tax saving purposes, I have nothing else to say. Not sure what to answer.

can you guys please help me out with this? thanks heaps.

I think you have to clearly explain again to your CO that you ignorantly followed your tax agent's advice and that you actually had no de facto at all.

It seems that there has been a communication break down somewhere along the line. If you have copies of the documents you sent originally, you may have to photocoopy them again, stating that you had sent them before and that you mentioned on these forms that you had no spouse at the time the tax was done.

COs deal with at ton of applications and they're only human. Just patiently explain again to remind them of your case.

Question Please help?

Hello Oz99,

Hope you have got your visa. Can you please share how long it took to get your visa once you have provided NOA to CO?

Thanks..
