My name is Susan Fordham and am having trouble not only accessing the ATO’s online Tax Return Form but following the various sections on the form. Some sections are easy to fill in while others are not. I am thankful to some of the businesses that I have invested in as they produce a Tax Guide to filling out sections to do with Capital Gains etc. ie at question 20 © put this amount in as indicated on their Tax Summary ie Colonial First State, Vanguard and Beta have printed their Tax Summaries with the ATO Office requirements in mind. Very thoughtful.
I do think that Choice Testers in conjunction with other Consumer Review Services like ‘Finder’, Canstar Blue’ and maybe other government department that deal in Commerce could get together and redesign re-imagine this form to make it easier and more accessible for small investors, paye, small business rather than relying on Accounting Software, Accounting Firms and the ATO’s legislation requirements that allow them to automatically deduct money directly from my bank accounts. Easy, Accessible Forms is what this consumer wants to see.
