Usually I submit my annual income tax return in late July or early August but this year I managed to leave it until the morning of the due date. I ended up submitting it via E-Tax at about 2am on Wednesday October 31.
As a result I wasn’t expecting to hear back from the tax office for weeks, so I was very surprised when I received the refund in my bank account in the wee hours of Tuesday morning, which means it only took them four business days to process it.
All I can say is that I am astounded by the efficiency of the Australian Taxation Office, and can only congratulate them and thank them for it.
Well done ATO!
