Did you know that when you link the ATO to your myGov account, all of your ATO correspondence will be sent directly to your myGov inbox, rather than through the post, or through us?
The types of ATO mail you may receive in your myGov inbox include:
- notices, such as notices of assessment
- statements of account
- confirmations and reminder notices
- activity statements or instalment notices
ATO digital communications containing personal information, such as your tax file number, will be sent to your myGov inbox, rather than your email account, due to legal and privacy requirements.
If you have the ATO linked to your myGov account, we will still be able to see a copy of the digital letters, SMS and emails that you have been sent via the Tax Agent Portal, however we will NOT receive notifications when correspondence is sent by the ATO. It is very important that you regularly check and manage your myGov account.
If you don’t have a myGov account linked to the ATO, we will continue to receive your ATO mail via the post, so long as we are listed as your registered agent.
