    Quick tax question...

    Do you need to enter any details if your total tax withheld was 0? I'm doing Etax online and it has already pre filled the tax I paid on the PPL, but I didn't pay any tax from my employer. So do I need to put that anywhere?

    In the income earned section you have to put gross earnings and tax deducted from your payment summary you will have received from your employer.
    BTW mygov is much easier and quicker for simple tax returns than etax. It's new this year and you can track your return as well.

    Called ATO and now using MyTax on the mygov site. Can you still claim for uniform etc when you have 0 tax withheld?

    You can't get a tax refund if you've paid no tax at all - however you will still put your deductions in so that your income is reduced incase you have to pay tax.

    You shouldn't even need to lodge one, just follow non lodgement link on c/link.

    I have to lodge because I paid tax on PPL. I called to check yesterday. Otherwise yes, I wouldn't have to lodge. I filled out half the stuff on Mytax, will finish tomorrow. It seems much, much easier than Etax!
