The ATO has Disaster Assistance for those affected by natural disaster

31 March 2017 | Australian Tax Office

The ATO says it may be able to fast-track any tax refund payments for people affected by natural disasters (you can call 1800 806 218 to ask for this, or if you are a tax agent and are calling on behalf of a client, call 0428 887 104.

And if you know there will be difficulty meeting a tax bill due to the effects of a natural disaster, you can ask for more time, and also ask for debt interest to be waived, by calling the same numbers. This includes amounts owing as a result of a business activity statement (BAS).

Contact your accountant/tax agent or the ATO for assistance if you are one of the thousands impacted by the effects of Cyclone Debbie.
