This even applies to tax returns filed after the October 31 due date, though Australians using a registered tax agent to file their return have until May 15 next year to provide it.

People can check if they are eligible to set up a payment plan. Those who anticipate having trouble paying are encouraged to contact the tax office as soon as possible.
