MyTax is available to all individuals completing their own return (including sole traders). It's available on tablets, smart phones and computers. MyTax pre-fills your return with information provided by your employer, bank, government agencies and others. This information is usually available by early August, so if you wait until then all you'll have to do is review the information, add any missing details and then select 'submit'.
