Office Closure This Christmas
Macro Tax are taking an extended break this Christmas. We will close at 3pm on Friday 14 December. Dejan and Luisa will be back on deck on Monday 14 January, with the rest of the staff returning on 21 January.
We would like to thank everyone that has supported us this year and look forward to working with you in the New Year.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a bright and prosperous New Year.
We understand that a number of people have requested appointments prior to Christmas. Our current priority is to finalise all work currently in our office and therefore we will not be taking any further appointments until we return.
If you would like to drop your information off to us, we are happy to accept this and it may be finalised prior to our Christmas closure.
Scam phone calls and Emails
We are receiving a number of phone calls each week with people being concerned that they have received a phone call telling them that they are about to go to jail. Please be careful. The ATO will not call you and leave a message saying this. This can only occur under extreme circumstances.
The ATO and many other government bodies are quite concerned at the number of people that falling victim to these scams.
If you are unsure if the phone call or email is legitimite:
hang up and call the ATO directly yourself. This will tell you immediately if the phone call is real
do not answer any emails. Call the people that have sent you the email to confirm if this is in fact from them.
We are aware that many of you have registered for myGov and have ticked the ATO box. Please note that if you do this, we no longer receive paper documents for you.
The Notice of Assessment has especially become a very big problem for us. The Assessment becomes electronic. You will be notified by myGov when your assessment is ready to be viewed. We will not be notified by the ATO that the Assessment is ready. We can at a later stage access the information from the ATO but we will not receive a paper document and therefore will not send one out to you.
