ATO Dealing with Disasters

The ATO information on dealing with disasters has been updated to include information relevant to the floods experienced by many in NSW earlier this year.

The ATO webpage covers assistance payments, lodgement deferrals, early access to refunds, damaged or destroyed property, reconstructing tax records and more.

There are links to information specific to COVID-19, bushfires, floods and drought.

There is also helpful information about protecting yourself during recovery, acknowledging that vulnerable people recovering from a disaster can be taken advantage of.
